Cmap Tools: an open source software to create Concept Maps

This software has multiple uses in education for collaborative work. In Cmap Tools users have an ID and password and only the owner of the map gives permissions to add, modify and delete resources. Its use can be either synchronically or asynchronically. Concept maps can be used to braimstorm, develop ideas, draw conclusions or revision. Undoubtedly,this software is great to implement because students share, discuss and construct knowledge which results in meaningful learning that will stay in their long term memory.
