WikiMindMap

Thanks to Nixit for posting this online tool...has possibilities.

"WikiMindMap is a tool to browse easily and efficiently in Wiki content, inspired by the mindmap technique. Wiki pages in large public wiki's, such as wikipedia, have become rich and complex documents. Thus, it is not always straight forward to find the information you are really looking for. This tool aims to support users to get a good structured and easy understandable overview of the topic you are looking for."

Will quickly suggest and display related topics and keywords for discussion/questioning or as a starting point for further research/exploration.

Hi Fiona,

Good to catch up on Friday. Yes, I think this is an interesting application to have in the tool kit. It allows you to look at what other keywords might come out of a central idea and quickly consider whether they are of any use or relevance.

This looks like a cool tool, thanks for the heads up Fiona. Will now go away and check it out. Have you see the edu2.0 site? It is on my delicious, it is a really good resource that has just started, I think that it will continue to expand and we will see other iterations of this kind of education resource proliferate in the next few years.
