Idea Mapping Using MindManager  

An Idea Map is a powerful visual thinking tool that enhances memory, notetaking skills, thought organization, planning, creativity and communication. It uses color, key words, lines and images to connect thoughts associatively. Idea Maps are the natural expression of the way the brain processes information associatively.>br>
This course is being offered for anyone who desires to unleash their own learning potential and discover innovative approaches for addressing today’s business, educational and personal challenges.

Idea Maps are not restricted by the laws of Mind Mapping. Although you will learn some Idea Mapping “guidelines”, you will be empowered with the freedom to break them based on the purpose of your Idea Map. Idea Maps are the more practical, flexible, and usable version of Mind Maps. You will create the style of map that works for you!

MindManager is the world’s most popular Mind Mapping software and extends the usefulness of mind mapping by providing a flexible tool to help you create compelling and memorable maps. MindManager helps business professionals achieve more by efficiently organizing and clearly communicating complex ideas and information. This workshop focuses on equipping you with the basics of the MindManager tool so that you can use it immediately in your professional and personal life.

After you complete this course, besides understanding the basic principles of Idea Mapping and MindManager, you will have created an electronic ‘To-Do’ list, a map of a project that is important to the student, worked collaboratively to create a map within a team environment and created an outline of a simple project using the project capabilities of MindManager. Students will also receive a free copy of the most current version of MindManager including three years worth of version updates from Mindjet, the developer of the software. The retail value of the software and updates is approximately $550.

Students must bring their own personal windows-based computer as well as a mouse. The advantage to this is that students will be able to work on their own computer that is familiar to them and be able to take their work home from the class as well. We can also support Apple computers as long as they have Windows emulator software.

Please be aware students are responsible for bringing their own personal computer, mouse and charger to class.
