Mind Map of Course Topics


This course has been designed for a wide audience featuring information about using the power of XMind mind mapping applciation to plan out your thoughts, tasks, and projects. This mind mapping course idea came about as I started representing my own ideas and work-related tasks visually through mind maps. General brainstorming, website planning and presentation, keyword targeting, and advertising stratagies are all things that mind mapping has allowed me boost the productivity of the time I use to plan a project giving me a clearer more powerful result. Because of the great results I've produced using mind maps, paying $150 for mind mapping software was no big deal. Once I moved to Linux I discovered I can use free mind mapping applications, many available for my Linux, Mac and Windows machines. I've found applications like Free Mind and XMind to be endlessly useful and I want to share these tips with you. This course will cover XMind and its basic features and uses.
