Give your learners a link to a presentation or paper they must watch or read
Ask them to create one branch in the mind map for every concept the presentation or paper presents.
Instead of using in the title of the branch the name of the concept, have them present the concept as a question
If the concept leads to other concepts, have them develop child branches in the same manner.
Have them share their mindmap with you and give them feedback
Building the concept map and its questions will make them incorporate and process the new knowledge. Having them build the questions will make them elaborate further on them and contribute to moving and storing this knowledge in their long term memory.
Go to the example below to see a mind map developed after watching a lecture on optic disk examination
In the following video, you will be able to learn how to create a video-lecture that is a PowerPoint presentation with embedded surgical videos, animations, and post it to YouTube. You will also learn how to add a menu to your video.
Many times you upload videos to YouTube to which you link to. If you use the link YouTube gives you your video runs inside a YouTube page, with other videos around it and at the end more links to videos are shown. Even if you use the “embed” code, at the end you are offered more videos.
See below how you can modify your link so your video runs full page with no videos around or at the end.
