Testing my abilities

Hi everyone!

This is simply a test post to see whether I can actually post a concept map in a blog. This is very new to me, so please let me know if it is readable. Here's hoping it turns out okay.

Fantastic - an excellent example - how did you do it??!

Hi James,

Thankyou for the feedback. I initially created the concept map in Microsoft Word. Once printed out, I scanned the image to my computer and saved it as a jpeg file, that way I was able to upload it relatively quickly to my posting. There is probably a simpler way, but it worked well for me. It was definately a challenge, because prior to this unit, I had no idea how to do it! So I figured I should have a pratice before I try to submit the real thing for Blog 1. It has definately been a good learning curve for me.

OK - thanks for explaining - it worked!.

We can shorten the steps by avoiding any printing and scanning. With the map showing on your screen, use the Print Screen button (if you're on a PC?). This captures the full screen being displayed onto the clipboard. Then you can paste this into your image editing software (what did you use?) and crop it.
