Questions from the class:
Can you use Google’s MindMup 2.0 with an iPad?
I’m not sure. I couldn’t find any mobile apps for MindMup, and their tagline is “free online mind mapping,” so that makes me think that it works on web browsers. Please share in the comments if you are able to use www.MindMup.com with your iOS web browser.
Can I add web links to mind map nodes in MindMup 2.0?
Yes. From the MindMup website: “You can add hyperlinks to map nodes easily, and connect your maps to external resources on the Web, or cross-link maps. This allows you, for example, to create an overview map with global topics, and then link from individual nodes in that map to other mind maps, exploring topics in detail. … Just paste a URL into the text of a node. The node will get a clickable link widget, and MindMup will display the starting part of the URL in the map node. You can click on the link widget and the browser will open the target URL in another tab.” View the tutorial here: ADD LINKS TO MAP NODES.
Can you add a legend to explain the colors of each node in MindMup?
Yes. Add a “parent / root node” to explain what each color means. Or add new root notes for each color and group them together. Here is an example: Example of a legend created with root nodes.
