Using mind maps to outline your course syllabus not only models how to organize information but also adheres to the universal design principles of conveying information in multiple modes.

 Show Them the Money: Using Mind Mapping in the Introductory Finance Course (Biktimirov & Nilson, 2006).

 To Do:

  1. Using MindMup or another visual organizer tool in the EdTech Sandbox, create a concept map of your course syllabus.
  2. Please upload or provide a link your concept map as a response to the Syllabus Concept Map activity.
  3. After you make your submission, save the web address to your response (found in the green confirmation box) so you can use it later for your badge submission form.
