- Concept Map – The map shown in the video is available now inside the Mindomo concept mapping tool. I have embedded the map below (you can navigate it by clicking and dragging around inside the map), or you can open the map in a new browser window by clicking here. In addition, feel free to contact me (go to the Contact Michael page) if you would like me to send you a copy of the map which you can import into a MeadMap account and alter it any way you wish.
