About this course
Mind Mapping is a free course by Edraak, which covers the uses, benefits, and steps of mind mapping. In addition, the course highlights the various areas where we can apply mind mapping and how we can utilize it to improve our performance by replacing words with graphics to make our ideas more organized, concise, comprehensive, and easy to remember.
Mind mapping is defined as images that contain graphics with special symbols to help us understand them. Mind mapping can be used in all areas of life to indicate the different geographical locations on earth, the population density in a particular area, terrain, climate, or even our personal life matters.

You will also learn how you can use maps to organize any aspect of your life, whether it was education, business, or personal issues. The course is dedicated to teaching mind mapping in easy steps for both children and adults.
Mind Mapping is not new, yet it has recently been used as a means of unlocking untapped potential in people’s ways of thinking and unleashing their creative outside the box ideas that help the brain get creative with solutions and express them on paper or even digitally using any specialized software.
Mind mapping emerged as a modern method of thinking by drawing a scheme that combines writing, symbols, drawings, colors, and images, aiming to clarify the designer’s ideas. We can understand the map by analyzing the drawings to understand them, linking the meanings of words to these pictures, and then linking these meanings with each other.
Mind maps are also called mental maps or cognitive maps, the name is derived from the word mind to reflect on how the human brain works. Mind maps are one of the most successful methods used for studying, as they enable students to connect all information with each other and get back to it at any time.
During this interactive course, we will create two mind maps, one on time management and another on global warming and what can we do about it, as a means of practice. You will need some papers and coloring pencils to use throughout the learning period to be able to learn how to draw our mind map step by step.

Edraak, is a massive open online course (MOOC) platform, that is an initiative of the Queen Rania Foundation (QRF). QRF is determined to ensure that the Arab world is at the forefront of educational innovation. As such, QRF has capitalized on regional Arab talent to leverage technology developed by the Harvard-MIT consortium, edX, to create the first non-profit Arabic MOOC platform. The new MOOC platform will present the Arab world with unique and vital opportunities that can be part of a necessary revolution in education and learning.
First, the platform will broadcast the best Arab professors to the region, offering original Arabic courses – developed by QRF – to further enrich Arab education. Through its partnership with edX, the platform will also give Arab learners access in Arabic to courses taught and developed at top tier institutions like HarvardX, MITX, and UC BerkelyX. All courses are delivered at no cost to the learner.
Second, QRF envisions the use of the platform to showcase Arab role models by broadcasting short online courses by practitioners and professionals from a variety of fields spanning the arts and sciences.
Finally, QRF believes that the platform will enable the Arab world to take advantage of the international interest in regional affairs to tell its own story to the world. Arab university professors and regional experts can use the platform to give courses in English about the region and its history. This will serve to inform a global audience that is interested in the region’s development.
