Comments from those who selected Cmap as one of their top tools (pre-2016)

“Excellent for creating concept maps and visualizing my students process of gaining and retaining knowledge” Santiago González Chávez, 2015

“When I’ve got some complex ideas to sort out and simplify, I quite often turn to CmapTools. This is a concept mapping tool that allows any concept to link to any other concept, along with linking phrases. Very quickly, a map can become too complex. But then that forces a thought process to simplify it down to its essentials. I often go through that process when preparing presentations or learning materials. It makes sure you only include detail that is relevant”  Mark Berthelemy

” I use concept mapping for planning, organizing topics, and to see how ideas connect to each other. When teaching, in order to evaluate learner’s understanding, I require her/him to produce a CMAP of how course components relate.”  George Siemens
