Storyboarding is the process of describing action over time, usually in a series of still images or video clips. This process is used by filmmakers and videographers to plan out what and how they want to shoot footage. It can also be used to create a timeline for other projects or to visually map historical events or literature.

Everything is hosted online, so there's no installation required.Visual Impact: all on one page, displayed as a flow-chart or node-treeAdaptability for group work: Many students can work on one mind-map at a time and the mind-maps can be viewed by everyone. Everything is hosted online, so there's no installation required.

Springboard is not as useful if you don't have a tablet, according to one review.Visual Impact: more than one cell visible at a time, but the maximum display depends on the software.Adaptability for group work:These programs are locally hosted (i.e. installed on your computer) so sharing files is not very convenient and working simultaneously is impossible. Only others with the same program installed can view the files.
Powerpoint is available with MS Office Suitehttp://docs.google.com
