What is Mind Mapping?

Online Mind Mapping, Explained.

Mind mapping is a visualization method for written information. The key topic is placed in the center of the map, and related ideas branch off from this in all directions. Although you can mind map on paper, online mind mapping tools add a new dimension to the process: enabling real-time collaboration with coworkers (even remotely) and much more besides.

Organize Information, Visually.

Structure Information

Mind maps can store and structure vast amounts of information. They display hierarchy, show relationships between ideas and enable you to see the “big picture” at a glance. This also makes mind maps the ideal tool for presentations, group work and project planning.

Work Smarter, Not Harder.

Improve Comprehension

In both school and university education, mind maps are effective learning aids. By structuring information in a way that is more compatible with visual learning styles, and by filtering long texts into shorter mind map topics, learners can absorb large amounts of information faster.

Better Ideas, Faster.

Enhance Productivity

Mind mapping helps you learn faster and communicate efficiently, which is why businesses use mind maps to get the most out of their teams. According to a survey by the Mind Mapping Software Blog, mind mapping software can increase productivity by an average of 23 percent.

“‪Whether you have any experience with mind mapping or not, MindMeister makes it easy to brainstorm, outline and expound on ideas, concepts, and plans.”
