Concept mapping also referred to as Cmap is a software tool developed at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC). Cmap is a free application that allows users to share their knowledge through Concept maps (also known as mind maps) via the Internet. The Concept map tool allows users to create an illustration using text; graphics; and inserting web links.
This tool can be used to map your face-to-face lectures; presentations; tutorials; and workshops. You can further integrate the Cmap tool into your online environment to structure your objectives, content and assessment tasks. Students will be able to view the concept map with their online courses.
