Resources for Creating a Case Study Course on Udemy

This is a list of resources that I used to create my logo design course on Udemy that I talk about in the video. It also includes some alternatives that you can try out.

Mind Mapping Software

Mindmeister (Online and Mobile Devices):  Mindmeister is the software I use to do my mindmapping. It is a paid service, but if you look at the pricing page at the bottom there is a “Basic” option which is free and lets you make three mindmaps – www.mindmeister.com

Alternative Free Mindmapping Software
