About This Class

In this class I will teach you to use one of my favourite software programs for creating mindmaps.Its simple, quick and fun and you can use it whenever and wherever you like. Its called mindjet and you can download it for free. Personally I have been making mindmaps for over 5 years now, and I can share my experience on how to get started easily and what to do first. Later, you'll be able to create amazingly beautiful mindmaps either for yourself, your studies or your work. It will save you all ot of time and nerves!! Join Now! :)

Transcripts

1. Lesson 1 starting with Mind Maps: hello. And in this course we will be creating mind maps, which is a tool for optimized learning. And if you shouldn't sorting off your information, it will help you along the way to study a subject you prepare for exam or study anything with a lot of information complexity. Mind maps help you organize your thoughts and organized the information which you are trying to learn. But you may ask, why're mind maps so effective? The reason behind this is that my maps work just like your brain does in your brain. Information is connected to the information that you need to remember. Where is multiple ways and the pattern, which arises from this way off. Sorting and remembering information is very similar to the way mind lips work in the mind map. They resist central part, which is called the topic. And then there are branches, which are sub topics off the main topic. Your brain works in a very familiar to you'd fashion and using my maps will be very useful because the brain remembers all the information in the same way as it is organized in mind map. And so it is much easier to learn new stuff 2. Lesson 2 Choosing a Topic: so the first and the most important step in creating a mind map is off course, choosing the topic. First, you'll choose a topic just randomly just to practice. And then you can use the method, which you will learn in any field that you like, because method off mind mapping is universal and can be used in any fueled. For example, if you choose a technical subject, so you're choosing either math, physics or engineering or something else, you will start a mind map by choosing one of the topics in that subjects. For example, you choose math and in Matthew, choose geometry, and then you can either. Right down the formulas, which are related to geometry, were some basic principles that are used in mathematics, Um, or anything that is related, who signs. On the other hand, if you choose humanities, for example, history, you can still use the method off mind mapping because it lets you split the topic into its sub topics and then manipulate the information inside of it. So, for example, if you choose history, you can, uh, choose a specific country, and then you can split the history by time intervals. If you choose literature, for example, and you choose some, uh, some of the writings. You can take the text and take the how peaks or the headings off each chapter and put them as main branches off your mind map. So basically, you can use this mind map universally for any topic and any subject you like, because it uses the same process off, taking one topic and then breaking it down into different sub toppings. 3. Lesson 3 Building a Platform: All right, So at this point, you must have chosen your topic. The topic which will be the main idea off your mind map. You shall put this topic in the center in the very center off your mind map and make this circle around it. Next, you will be adding smaller circles that are the main branches off your mind map, and we will call it a platform because it's a platform for the last or the third. Type off information which will be added later. No, you will focus on what are the main parts off what you want your mind left to be. You feel like you can compare it to the book. Where are the main parts off the book? And then there is a name off the book, so the main parts are the branches at the name of the book. Is the central part of your mind or the topic off your mind map? No. Well, you'll be trying to split the main topic into different sub topics. It will be useful to use some methods for splitting the topic into different parts. You can use any method you like, but I will suggest to most important and common methods, first of which it's timeline. In our example off history, we are using the method for splitting the topic called timeline. You're basically telling, ah that the topic is breaking down into different parts, and all this parts are in different time time frames or in different periods of time and their separate from each other. Uh, this is one of the most commonly used methods. The the second common method is method by grouping. So you have one topic and it has a lot of information around it. So what you're doing in grouping is that you are taking the information which is similar to the other information. By doing this, you create some groups off information and this information in this groups help some one or two were even more same features. These are the futures by which you are making this groups, and later it will help you to build your mind map even more 4. Lesson 4 Building a Tree: so by no, you must help created your central topic and defined your main branches, from which you will start to build on your mind map. And this is the next step, which I call building a tree. So what building a tree means is basically adding leaves So you have created your tree and you have created the main branches. So the last step in creating the tree is to add the lives or the two had the most important information. Um, that is related to all of the branches off your tree. So you are basically doing what is called wedding details, and these details are really important. These are the details that you think you need to remember and you need to study. By doing so, you will finally create your mind map, and you will see how how the information is spread on the mind map. Which branch has more information? Which branch has less information? You might try to rearrange some off the information and details, or you might try to build the new mind map, and you might decide that you don't like that one This way. You will finally at all the information to your mind map, and it will be finally complete 5. Lesson 5 Customization: So now that your mind WEP is finally created, I'll suggest you doing some fixes and doing some customers ization to your mind map. Um, this process is the lost step, and it is also one of the most important parts off creating a mind map because it actually helps you to memories, what you have learned and memories the information that you have put on the paper. So the first way to customize your mind map is to add colors. Adding colors is a great method because it is easy for your brain to remember the text and the information, which is colored. It grooves the information by the same color, and it made. It's much easier for you to remember it. Second method is to add drawings to your mind map. This can be anything from a small growing to a large one, but the main point off creating and growing is actually for you to memories the information better, because pictures are much easier to remember then plain text and especially the pictures that you have grown yourself So the quality of the picture doesn't really matter as long as it's a picture and it is related to the information on your mind. And the final method or small technique is to make out place, which is the same as grouping the information, but in already defined groups. This will also help you to visualize the information better and learn Fuster. 6. Lesson 6 Final Tips: Finally, if you have been following all the steps, you should help come up with something like this map that you see on the screen. It has a central topic, its main branches and sub topics, an additional information and additional details, which are later outlined and group together. Your map should look approximately like this, who is more colors and with text. So next I want to talk about what are the tools for creating this mind maps. The first and the most useful tool is, of course, pen and paper. By practicing creating this mind map so paper you'll be able to del of the skill which is were useful, and you can use it anywhere. Then you can also search for online websites, which some of the websites provide really good services for creating free online mind maps . And this is one of the ways to do this. And the third way is to don't know some software which will allow you to create my lips, and they're pretty much zero very good programs for doing so. I wish you best luck, and I hope that you learned how to create good my naps and how to structure the information that you need to remember
