Mind Mapping Method

Mind mapping notetaking is a graphic representation of the content of a lecture. Systems have bubbles and connectors to other bubbles. Many free mind mapping systems are available online such as FreeMind. Just Google it.

Best Use: When the lecture format is unknown or the lecturer tends to jump around. Since the entire map is in front of you, making an addition connecting ideas or a new bubble easy.
