A concept mapping tool that learns with you
And everyone else who uses it
Every new concept and relationship is stored into one huge interconnected knowledge graph. When you create a new concept map, ContextMinds uses the knowledge to give you a helping hand and suggest the concepts related to the map. This helps you to quickly put together all concepts and relationships that are important in the context of your map.
a concept map?
Concept map is a visual representation of concepts and relationships between them. Concept is anything you can think about. In a concept map, it is represented with a rectangular node or bubble labeled with the name of the concept. Labeled links between the concepts represent the relationships. Concept map, similarly to mind map, reflects how we think about the world. It helps us represent our thoughts visually and, in turn, helps us think, learn, teach and communicate.
It's like mind maps, but better
Concept mapping is in principle very similar to mind mapping. The difference is that in a concept map, you can place the concepts anywhere you want and you can name or label the relationships between them. In a mind map, there is usually single most important concept in the middle and the rest is placed around. And the relationships in a mind map are just unlabeled links. However, you can create mind maps in ContextMinds if you want. It will still help you by suggesting relevant concepts and relationships.
All information about each one concept is merged together from every separate public map where it appears.
ContextMinds learns from it to provide you with contextual suggestions and enable you to reuse that information in your map.
Drag&drop without typing
ContextMinds learns from every new concept map to suggest you concepts and relationship relevant in the context of the map you are creating. Sometimes you don't have to type almost anything and still get a concept map suited to your needs.
When you type a term, ContextMinds searches all its public concept maps and knowledge graphs and suggests you concepts with similar names.
Whenever you change your map, ContextMinds searches for concepts related to it.
When you add a concept to your map, you can let ContextMinds find the relationships to other concepts that already are in the map.
Simple link-based sharing
Although the best way to learn is to create your own content, you can also share your maps. From teachers to students, between students or anyone else.
Free text, images, links
Each concept can be enriched with notes, links and images.
Links and images
With a quick preview
ContextMinds show you the images and pages that you link to a concept.
Tagging concepts and adding colors
Concepts can be enriched with tags determining what kind of concept that is. Concepts of the same kind are highlighted by the same color which makes the map much more readable.
