Mind maps increase attractiveness of classes and motivation of students to create their own associations and stimulate them to expand the knowledge acquired during the course. The aim of the work was to review information technology (IT) tools for building digital mind maps in terms of their use for teaching materials at the university level and to examine students’ opinions on their use as a tool to support the acquisition of knowledge. The results of questionnaire surveys among university students from two different non-technical majors confirmed research hypotheses about the increase in student acceptance for introducing new educational techniques.
