Questions & Answers

Q: How do you differentiate between a map of content and a table of contents?

A map of content is a dynamic and fluid representation of topics and connections, like Google Maps, while a table of contents is a more finalized and structured publication that outlines the contents of a specific piece of work.

Q: How can Map of Linked Content (MLC) help tertiary students write essays?

MLC can assist students by creating a note map that visualizes existing notes and identifies gaps in arguments. By gathering relevant notes and filling in the gaps, students can develop a well-structured and comprehensive essay.

Q: Do all evergreen notes connect to a map of content?

Ideally, it would be beneficial for most evergreen notes to connect to a map of content. These connected notes act as waypoints or references, making it easier to navigate and find relevant information.

Q: Can the Light Kit in Obsidian help with daily task management?

While the Light Kit can be used for task management, it's advisable to separate task management and idea management. Task management lacks long-term value, while idea management allows for the growth and evolution of ideas.
