If you prefer to start from a blank canvas to build your maps node by node, Algor is the right web app for you. With its free plan, you can create textual maps, which are conceptual nodes with text (with a limit of 3 maps in edit mode). Just register with a free account (as explained in the video above) and open a new map in our conceptual map editor.
You will see an empty map skeleton that you can fill as you prefer. The Algor conceptual map editor in its free version allows you to:
- Insert new nodes, connections, and relationships;
- Add images, videos, links to external websites, and audio to map nodes;
- Use different fonts for text, including dyslexia-friendly fonts like Lexie Readable;
- Format text on nodes or arrows bold, italic, or underlined;
- Change the colors of text, node borders, and backgrounds;
- Automatically switch between mind map (radial) and conceptual map (tree) layouts;
- Easily move entire branches of the map.
Create a conceptual map from scratch in the Algor Education editor
All created maps are automatically saved to your account, and you can organize them in convenient folders with eye-catching symbols and colors. You can take your maps with you anywhere, as they are accessible and editable even from smartphones.
Furthermore, if you run out of ideas for your map topic, you can take advantage of the Quick Map feature, which automatically suggests questions and answers based on a keyword or phrase you choose. Algor Education's Free Plan offers you 20 free AI credits to try out this brand-new feature.
2. Create free conceptual maps from ready-made templates
If you prefer to start from a ready-made map template, Algor allows you to customize conceptual maps created by other users for free.
Each map created with this web app can easily be shared via a simple link with view-only or edit permissions (similar to Google Drive files). Moreover, with Algor's free plan, you can build your map in real-time together with other users, applying changes and customizations in real-time.
And that's not all! The Algor Education website offers a gallery of conceptual maps for school on various subjects of study, including history, Italian, philosophy, science, and many more. Just go to the map gallery, open the map, and create a personal copy on your free account that you can customize according to your own style.
3. Create free conceptual maps from online documents
If you have a digital document to start from to create your map, with Algor Education's free plan, you can upload PDF or doc files and use them to go from document to map in one click. Just select the text you want to include in the nodes and click a button.
As shown in the video tutorial, Algor Education connects documents and maps in the same screen, so any style changes applied in the document will also be reflected in the map environment, such as highlight colors.
Algor's Free Plan offers you 50MB of space to upload your PDF or doc documents, such as your e-books.
All you have to do is visit the Algor Education website and start creating concept maps for free with the Free Plan.
Furthermore, Algor offers many other features: automatic creation of concept maps from texts or keywords, exporting maps in various formats, printing and speech synthesis, which require a monthly or annual subscription.
