In this paper we describe our experiences while exploring alternative approaches to explain social theory in an undergraduate course in Social and Cultural Anthropology. We started out with a keyword-mapping exercise. CmapTools was then used to introduce the idea of concept mapping. This approach was complemented by a Web/Wiki based Hyperglossary application to define keywords that were connected through hyperlinks. We reflect on the role of key concept mapping for the achievement of the specific learning goals of the course and on its usefulness in Cultural Anthropology in general.
