Udemy – Document your thoughts like a genius – Mind mapping & Xmind [100% off] Worth $98!
Document your thoughts like a genius …. so why the title.. well when you take a close look at many of, what we might regard as genius characters over the centuries, the way they documented their thoughts, took notes, drew and sketched for inspiration, the format they chose when putting pen to paper had a remarkable similarity to what we now call mind mapping. Doodles, sketches, linking lines, pictures, images, groupings, big picture and fine detail. There was less color that the classic modern day mind map but crayons and felt tips were hard to come by so the humble quill had to surfice.
This course is about mind mapping – a slightly more formalised and researched form of note taking, that has huge benefits over traditional note taking or thought documenting techniques. Mind mapping is extremely fast , very intuitive and amazingly easy to re-visit and understand.
Mind mapping can be used by anyone who needs, at any point in their daily lives, make a plan, take clear and readable notes, explain to others concepts or projects. Everyone including C level executives, management consultants, project managers, engineers, writers, poets, students, designers, teachers, stay at home moms or dads. The uses for mind maps are only limited by imagination itself.
Imagine documenting one of Shakespeare’s plays – the plots, sub plots, characters, major and minor – the relationship between the characters within the play and even with characters in other of the bards plays. Maybe the relevance of the storyline to a particular time in the life of Shakespeare. To document all this information in a word document for example, might end up as a book in itself. Imagine having all this information on a single sheet, radiating out from a single central topic (i.e the name of the play) – all the information at a glance – imagine using this as the tool to explain every facet of the play to a class of students for example. Mind maps have awesome power to map, distill and convey information.
This course covers the theory and principles of mind mapping and then gives you an in depth look into the fantastic market leader mind mapping software XMind.
The course consists of three and a half hours of video tutorial and supplementary materials and the occasional quiz. Depending on your time commitments, the course can be completed anywhere between a day and a few weeks.
