As I've stated frequently in previous posts, a concept map is simply a drawing of a concept. The simpler the better, so there's no need for artistic skills.
One of my students recently make me aware of another FREE tool you can use to make your own concept maps quickly and easily. It's called Edraw Mindmap.
If you want to see how it works, check out the Edraw video Make an Effective Mind Map. This video has a funky robotic narration, but it gives you a quick rundown on how easy the software is to use. Maybe you should turn off the sound and play your favorite music (the narration simply speaks tips that clearly printed in the video).
