Presentation Title
“Collaborative Concept Mapping – Breaking the Bounds of Location and Time… for $0.00 per Seat”

Description
This presentation will explore a Concept Mapping solution developed at University under funding by US government agencies. CMapServers are running around the world for accessing, publishing and collaborating in building Concept Maps. CMapTools, use of which can promote the development of high-order thinking skills, is a stand-alone application for developing Concept Maps that can be published to a CMapServer. These Concept Maps are capable of containing concept text and relationships, as well as rich multimedia elements and hyperlinks to other resources to support and inform the map.

    Living in Pensacola, FL, home of the IHMC, we are familiar with CMAP tools. Thus far, we have utilized the single user version only. I believe after watching your screencast, that I can convince our IT tech to install it on the server at our school.

    Thanks Frank

  2. Frank says:

    I’d go for it Jeff.

    Any Linux, Mac, or Windows computer will do the job with nothing more than that 1-minute install involving typing the computer name or IP address and the name and password of the admin.

    It just doesn’t get any easier than that.

    Then, you’ve got a common/central place for the users to store their maps, and the means to share and collaborate.

    I love the cmap idea but I can’t see a video. Do I need something other than Windows Media player.

  4. Frank, I installed the CMapTools easily as I watched your screencasts. I’ve been wanting to learn about CMapTools for a while. Thank you for creating an easy to follow walk through of getting set up and using CMapTools. Great presentation.

  5. [...] to check out CMapTools, as well as Frank Pirrone’s presentation for K12Online07 on CMapTools, “Collaborative Concept Mapping – Breaking the Bounds of Location and Time… for $0.00 per Sea… Freemind is another free concept mapping software program, but I have not used it at all. [...]
