For many of us, creating a word based outline to organize thoughts is far too tedious a process to be considered unless required. Don’t get me wrong, outlines are valuable organizational tool, and using a word processer makes them vastly easier to create then, shudder to think, than paper and pencil. But using color coded, a linked text bubble in an online dynamic environment is way neat. You can even “dial a friend” and collaborate in a joint effort. Once completed, your concept map can be exported as an image or posted onto websites with an embed code.

1. Click on the “start bubble”> type in your text

Comiqs.com offers students (and teachers) an alternative report creating tool. The program is quick to learn and allows students to put together short comic books. They can add bubble over text, pictures, and cool comic type fonts.

From what I have read the only complaint was regarding students loosing work, the solution proposed was to have them saving early and often.
