Learn Anything (Almost) Through These Interactive Mind Maps

Learn Anything is a neat website that is essentially a giant mind map. Enter a topic into the search box on Learn Anything and a mind map of related topics will appear. Each node of the mind map that appears is hyperlinked to either another mind map, to a video, or to text-based resources for learning more about the topics connected through the mind map. See my video below for a demonstration of how it works.

Applications for Education
Learn Anything could be a good resource for students to use to see the connections between topics within a subject area. Seeing those connections can be helpful to students when they are embarking on a research project as the nodes within a mind map may give them some topics to pursue that they might not have considered without the mind map.

 Learn Anything is a work in progress. There are many subjects covered in Learn Anything, but there is still more to come.
