How to Use This Tutorial

Our tutorial takes you on an example "virtual journey" through the Concept Map Builder (CMB) website and provides instruction on how to access the various features on our interface.

To use this tutorial, roll your mouse over the images on each of the following pages to see what will happen when you click on these features in the actual CMB (note that you will have to click, rather than roll over these features in the CMB). Italicized links in our text will also initiate rollovers.

Links in our text that are not italicized will take you to a different page or open pop-ups containing additional information. You must have pop-ups enabled on your machine for the pop-up links to work.
