The highlights in the mindmap below will be most relevant to you if you participated in today’s SMMOC mastermind meetup.  But…

…But, MindMapping Output Formats Are Getting More Ubiquitous

Even if you’re not a regular attendee of our mastermind meetings, you’ll still find some value in downloading the (free) PDF below.  (Update:  FYI. The download file is a different format than the image above.  The download is an interactive Adobe player file.  It’ll let you expand branches and see associated references.)

In addition to including some valuable reference links we shared in today’s meeting, I think you’ll find it interesting to experience one of the interactive output formats available through some of the mindmapping software you’ve seen me use before in many of my training videos.  (You’ll need the latest [free] Adobe Reader, if you don’t already have it.)

‘Getting Any Ideas?

What ideas come to mind about how you might use mindmaps in your own online content creation projects?

  1. Mel,

    This is as beautiful as it is useful. Thank you for doing all of this work for us.

      Thank you Jerry. I love MindMaps. They’re so versatile… I use them for many things from note-taking, brainstorming, outlining, training and presentations. Glad you found it helpful. 🙂

    Hi Mel,

    I’m working for a Palo Alto startup that’s looking into launching our own mind mapping software in the very near future. Since it looks like you’re an avid mind mapper, we’d be interested in getting your input on how you’ve used mind maps before and what sort of features would make life for a mind mapper like yourself much easier!

    We’d really appreciate your opinion. Your ideas might even get incorporated into our product. We look forward to hopefully hearing back from you via email. Thanks!

      Hi Marianne.

      Thanks for reading and commenting. I’m happy to help. Let me know the email to respond to and I’ll be happy to help. By way of a quick summary for some of my other readers, I’ve used mindmaps very effectively in the following ways:
      o brainstorming
      o team collaboration
      o social content sharing
      o training
      o interactive presentations (in lieu of PowerPoint)

      Those, just to name a few.

  3. Mel,

    As usually you have another great post. This mindmapping software is great, but for a low budget guy like me, as I stated in a preview, I use an open source version of FreeMind, found at http://sourceforge.net/projects/freemind/files/

    This software also allow you to add notes and graphics, but it does not look at good as the paid version that you are using.

    As always, I really enjoy reading your post.

      Hi Jim. Thanks for sharing. Yeah, I love some of the opensource software cataloged on the sourceforge.net site. They have another (non-mindmap) software that I use extnsively — Audacity.

      As for Freemind, I’m with you. For budget considerations, open source is a way to go. And, I think there’s a lot many of our readers can do with Feemind. Thanks for sharing it. 🙂

      • Thanks for the comment. As I told you before, I am now just really getting to do videos, the old mind block when a camera comes on. But I am learning to adapt.

        Based on your post, I now use Audacity to do the audio, Camtasia, to do the video and PowerPoint 2010 to produce slides and small video clips for importing into Camtasia.

        What a learning curve.

        I really appreciate what you are doing and love to learn new stuff. Keep up the good work!
