What's on My Mind #edtech

Tonight's post brings us to another interesting mind map tool with potential.  Normally, I wouldn't recommend a tool like Text2MindMap because it's just not all the way there yet as a tool.  But here's why I like it: It's simple! All you have to do to build a Text2MindMap is paste or type an outline into a text box and click "convert to mind map."  Instantly a mind map is built out based on the indentations in your outline.  It is somewhat interactive and customizable.  You can make the map full screen and pull the nodes around to rearrange them.  When your happy you can save it as a jpg file.   Here's what I think needs to be added to make this a real viable tool.  First, the ability to save and come back and edit the map.  Second, there needs to be an embed feature?  Text2MindMap is definitely one to keep an eye on.
