One of the main objectives of educators is to identifying inspiring and interactive approach to learning, and to encourage students to be more receptive and cooperative in the classroom. To help educators in achieving these goals we employed Visual learning techniques. Visual learning is a proven teaching method in which diagrams such as concept maps, mind maps, tree diagrams, organization charts and spider diagrams are used to help students of all ages think and learn more effectively. They are all used for storing, processing, organizing and presenting information graphically. These techniques are used across the curriculum and at all Key Stages in the UK. The most popular is Mind Mapping. Mind maps have been used in all facets of education, training and business. With the fundamental goal of fostering learning they have been shown to be an effective tool for displaying students' prior knowledge, summarizing what has been learned, note taking, aiding study, planning, scaffolding for understanding, consolidating educational experiences, improving affective conditions for learning, teaching critical thinking, supporting cooperation and collaboration, and organizing unstructured knowledge content. This paper emphasis the effectiveness of mind mapping in higher education which make a huge difference here as it offers students with different learning styles an alternative to the more traditional ways of teaching and learning that some find difficult to master.
