Build Your Own Toolkit
All of the professors that you will encounter in your advanced graduate journey were all
at one time exactly where you are today. They all had to find a system for finding their
way as well as how they were going to acquire and store resources as they worked to
complete their journey. This course provides you with a beginning Toolkit—that is, a set
of resources. How you organize your Toolkit as you make your journey is a personal
task. The items provided in the Toolkit will give you a great start.
What is a Toolkit?
The Toolkit is a set of resources that will assist you as you start your advanced
graduate journey. As you work on your courses and other assignments, you will find
additional resources to personalize your toolkit.
Where Should You Store Your Toolkit?
There are a variety of cloud-based bookmarking tools for collecting, organizing, and
sharing content and resources. The following two tools are used widely in education
and business settings. Both have free and premium accounts and a wide offering of
tutorials and support. In addition, both enable uploading of websites, documents,
PDF’s, images and more. The main difference between the two is how the information
you collect is organized. Here is an overview and link for each tool.
LiveBinders ( organizes information in binders using tabs
that appear at the top of webpage. The tabbing system can be organized on multiple
layers—create as many sub-tabs as you need. Binders are easily shared with anyone;
no LiveBinder account is needed. LiveBinders can be used effectively as a presentation
tool. By creating a Binder on a specific topic, you can easily navigate between websites
and documents right inside LiveBinder.
Evernote ( organizes information into folders and notebooks that
look like favorites lists on your browser. All information, including images, can be tagged
and searched; making locating your information relatively easy. Skitch, a free screen
capture program, and Penultimate, a free handwriting app for iPad, are part of the
Evernote family, so anything you create with these tools can be uploaded, tagged, and
organized in Evernote with just a click. In addition, you can send emails to your
Evernote account. Evernote notes and folders can be share by sending an email.
Both LiveBinders and Evernote have a tool that can be added to your browser toolbar,
so that as you browse the web you can add a webpage to a binder or notebook. In
addition to the browser-based tool, LiveBinders and Evernote have apps for the iPhone,
iPad, and Android phones and devices. The best way to choose a tool is to skim
through the tutorials and examples provided on their websites. In addition, these
resources will help you master the tool of your choice. Here is an excellent example: a

Should You Share Your Toolkit?
As you begin to use the course Toolkit and you work to personalize it to meet your
needs, others may ask you to share your resources with them. Whether you share your
Toolkit with others is your decision. But, please know that it is easier to make this
journey when you travel with others that you know and trust.

Mind Mapping Tools
Mind maps are visual representations of information. Using words, short sentences,
pictures, video, and/or links to the Web, the mind map image communicates the content
and structure of a subject. A mind map gives you a quick view of a central idea and the
branches of related topics, enabling you to see the how all the pieces fit together. Mind
maps are effective for:

Individual or group brainstorming of concepts, ideas, and problems
Taking notes and organizing information, concepts, and ideas
Summarizing information from a variety of research sources
Simplifying complex problems by seeing the connections and relationships
between the concepts and ideas
Sharing and presenting concepts, thought process, and ideas
Illustrating the big picture and relating sub-topics
Basics of Mind Mapping—How to Create a Mind Map
Begin by choosing a word or image that represents the main idea, topic, or concept for
your mind map. Next, create sub-topics that branch out from the main topic. Then add
sub-topics – sometimes referred to as nodes or children – to expand each idea and
concept to a deeper level. You can include images, web links, and even video to
develop the mind map even further.
This process can be used to create mind maps with paper and pencil. The same
process can be used with online mind mapping tools which are easy to create and
modify. In addition, some online mind map tools enable you to collaborate on mind map
The web is filled with tutorials and reviews for each of the tools mentioned. Simply type
terms such as “mind map tutorial” or “ tutorial” into a search engine (e.g.,
Google or Bing.)
Important Note: If you are using Internet Explorer, you may have to download the
latest version of Adobe Shockwave Player in order for some sites to load. Other
browsers, such as Firefox and Safari typically run the mind map tools automatically.
Tools and Examples
Here are several examples of free online tools that will make it easy for you to create
and share your mind maps.
1. –

want a tool that is easy to learn and use. Completed mind maps can be exported

three mind maps.
To get started, click on the web address above. Once you are on the
website, look to the upper right of the page, click on Create Account, and
complete all the fields. Be sure to use a permanent email address. Once you are

type in your main idea. Hover your mouse over the bubble and see the choices to
change the color or font size, add a link, attach a document, or delete the bubble.

bottom of the parent bubble. When you finish, click the save button on the top
right of the screen. You will be prompted to share your mind map with other users if you choose. You can print or export your mind map.

will take you to the start menu.
Press the space bar or double-click on the blue button and type in your main
topic. To add a subcategory, look to the right side of the screen and locate and
click on the icon in the third row and first column – hover your mouse over the

nodes. You can rearrange the nodes by holding the shift key while dragging and
dropping the child to where you want it. When you are finished with the mind
map, click the File button in the top left corner and choose to save, export, or
share your mind map.
3. Coggle –

an on-screen help that you can hide or show as the need arises. In addition,
Coggle is the only tool that enables real-time collaborating, including a chat
feature. This tool has the feel of Google docs, including share, export, and
embed features.

initial item double-click. To add branches, click on one of the plus signs. If you
need to rearrange the items, you can drag them around by clicking. Coggle will
assign different colors, but you can change them by clicking on a branch and
choosing from the color wheel that appears. When you finish, download the mind
map as a PDF or PNG. With your permission, others can just view or edit your
mind map. Like the Google docs, there is an auto-save feature and a revision
history. This enables you to track the changes in the mind map over time.
4. Text2Mindmap –
Text2Mindmap has a unique feature that sets it apart from other online mind
mapping tools: you can start your mind map with an outline and convert it to a
mind map, or vice versa. This provides flexibility for different types of thinkers. To
start with an outline, type your text in the text box, hit the tab key to indent text
lines. When you are finished, click the Draw Mind Map button below the text box
and the information will fill in the mind map. You can now email or download the
mind map—choose between a PDF or JPEG version.
