DSD: XMind mind mapping tool - workshop (ISXMW) 
Course Description:

XMind is a powerful mind mapping tool which you can use to capture your thoughts and ideas and bring them to life in a visual graphical form. Mind maps can be used to help structure reports, essays or lesson plans, to create revision notes or revision timetables, for brain storming, problem solving or to inspire creativity. Mind mapping can be useful for students, teachers, researchers, event planners and be particularly useful for those with specific learning differences.
