Coogle a free web based mind mapping tool

coggleI am a visual learner and visual presenter.  I enjoy taking complex problems, putting context around it, map it out and then come up with solutions.

I am a huge fan of XMind.  I have my own personal license.  However, I needed an alternative toolset for my new work laptop.

As I trolled www.lifehacker.com, I ran across an article about Coggle.  Coggle is free, web-based and easy to use.

After about 5 minutes of getting familiar with the tool set; I was on my way of diagramming out my new solutions.

I recommended it as an alternative if you cannot get XMind or Mindjet.

Here is the link to the Coggle website.  https://www.coggle.it

 

Trello – Fantastic, free web-based project management tool

 

Trello-Free-Organization-Tool-Easy-to-Use

A former colleague, Jason Coffey (click here to view his LinkedIn profile), showed me a great, free project management tool set called Trello.  Trello has a fresh approach to organizing tasks in a visual manner so you can quickly put your arms around a project.

The company has stated the tool set will always be free. So I have assurance that I can use it without the fear that I may get the hammer of going pay for use route with other great products I have used in the past.

They have a great demo/tutorial that I highly encourage you to look at to understand this new concept. But once you start building your project plan; you will understand why this tool set is popular.  It’s easy.  You can visually see and understand the stages of tasks in the entire project.  I love it!
