Abstract

Concept maps are used to graphically represent knowledge about a domain. As a knowledge representation tool, concept maps should attempt to incorporate representational mechanisms isomorphic to users' cognitive representations. This article describes a computer-based concept mapping tool that provides rich representational capabilities, including dynamic imagery (video, animated images, sound) and multiple levels of abstraction. The tool can automatically translate a concept map into an alternative representation-an outline- which contains all of the knowledge contained in a multilevel concept map. This concept map tool is accessible through any standard Web browser.
