Lucidchart is now available for Emmanuel College faculty and students. Lucidchart is an online diagramming tool that allows individuals or groups to
brainstorm ideas, organize thoughts, and collaborate in real time. It helps students collect, analyze and communicate their ideas. The web-based interface is quite intuitive, lending itself well for both you and your students to create flow charts, mind maps, and other types of diagramming, such as Venn diagrams. You can publish your diagrams to a website or download them as an image or PDF (and easily post to your course in ECLearn).

- Class example: During a lecture in an American Government class, work through the three branches of government through diagramming.
- Assignment examples:
- Do you assign your students to collaboratively complete projects? Have them include their brainstorming and organization of ideas as a Lucidchart diagram (it could also include visual representations).
- As part of a reading assignment, ask your students to graphically show their understanding of the relationships of the characters/subjects/topics.
- Graphic Syllabi: Several Emmanuel College faculty have used Lucidchart to create a graphic syllabus. Read more about how one faculty member developed a graphic syllabus in this Faculty Spotlight.
