Advent Apps 2: Mind Mapping Apps

Potentially a very useful tool for your revision and exam prep!

On the Heriot-Watt network we have two pieces of mind mapping software  – MindGenius and Inspiration – both have tablet versions available. See

Mind Mapping is great for

  • summarising a topic or a course in a visual format
  • improving memory recall by adding colour and pictures
  • identifying relationships between ideas
  • helping you identify quickly and easily the areas you have covered and what you still need to do
  • visual learners – it can help strengthen your understanding of a topic or concept, and build retention
  • getting organised
  • brainstorming ideas

So you could find it a very useful tool to help with your revision.

For information on getting a copy of MindGenius for your PC or laptop see Software for Personal Use
