VUE is a very powerful learning tool. We can use it to improve our learning skills. People that use visual learning tools usually have better results than other people.
Till now, with VUE we can make static maps that we can print, but I think is a better way to navigate towards our maps dynamically (I have a dream....) I try to explain my vision.
Instead of have all concepts in the same window, or in a link we have to click to open other static map, the software will have other mode, 'dynamic navigation mode'. In this window we can choose a little concepts to show. When we put the pointer over one of them, a little cloud around it appears, showing all related concepts, and we can click one of them to change the view. The new concepts cloud appears. We can find in this way an animation of how is connected our brain.
The closest to my mental picture is the mind mapping tool TheBrain (www.thebrain.com). When you click a concept an animation change the central node.
The Brain learns better in a dynamic way, if our software shows all concept-clouds dynamically, as in a video.
But maybe this will not be a tool to making concept mapping, but a tool to learn.
