Screen capture

You can use some free software for capturing screens shots such as Screenhunter or Camstudio . In addition you could try MS Encoder, which is free from Microsoft.


WikiMindMap is a tool to browse easily and efficiently in Wiki content, inspired by the mindmap technique. Wiki pages in large public wiki's, such as wikipedia, have become rich and complex documents. Thus, it is not always straight forward to find the information you are really looking for. This tool aims to support users to get a good structured and easy understandable overview of the topic you are looking for. Go and have a look!
