Vocabulary Navigator

  • The concept map tool is connected to collections of existing concepts and terms stored in "ontologies." These contain defined concepts or terms that are linked together by experts, representing a specific area of knowledge and are called "vocabularies." Connections between these terms can be visualized and explored using the vocabulary navigator.
  • To search for a term, click on the ‘Vocabulary Navigator’ button and enter a search term. Matching results will appear below the search box. Click on one of the results to visualize the term and its relevant connections. Clicking on the connected terms will reveal additional connections. Hovering over any term will display a definition, if available.
  • To return to your concept map, click ‘Return to Map’ in the left side of the workspace.
