Mind maps are a great way of organising your thoughts. To encourage the use of mind mapping, Text 2 Mind Map has provided a free and simple mind mapping tool online since 2008. Write some text in the text area, use the TAB key to indent text lines, and click the “Draw Mind Map”-button to see what happens. Each text line in the text area will become a separate node in the mind map. Indenting the text (using the TAB key) starts a new branch of nodes in the mind map.
