Are you keen to use mindmaps? I regularly use two types of mindmaps (mainly for collaborative projects with colleagues, as well as with students). Neither require any software download and both are used in your browser.
However, if you are still unsure as to why you might want to use mindmaps, and in an education setting if they are going to enhance learning, you may want to read this article first: "Using E-Maps to Organize and Navigate Online Content".
The first is Mindmeister (http://www.mindmeister.com/) - you can see an example of a mindmap around ePortfolios I have created and made public here. You can get three mindmaps for free (and it's only US$18 per annum for
unlimited mindmaps if you are an academic institution). The full list of features can be found here, but the best things about Mindmeister I have found are:
The second is Mindomo: http://www.mindomo.com/ - an example mindmap that I've created of ICT enhanced learning and teaching design can be viewed here. You can get seven maps for free. The full range of functions (and pricing) can be found here. The best things I have found with Mindomo though are:
I hope these overviews are useful - please drop me a line, or Skype me if you have any questions :-)
