Mindjet for iPad
As a student and as faculty, I have found mindmapping tools to be useful for brainstorming as a group or as a planning tool in preparation for writing papers, articles, etc. I wanted to find one that would work well on the iPad and a recent blog post on socialmediatoday provided interesting and valuable tips as well as a good, free mindmapping tool called Mindjet. The article, "Writing Tools, Part 1 - Why Authors Need iPads", included five reasons the author recommends iPads as valuable tools in the writing process. The importance of these mobile devices as productivity tools is becoming widely recognized. For faculty in higher education, the iPad with a mindmapping tool could greatly assist in organization, planning, and presenting research and published articles. OIT has iPads available for faculty and staff to utilize and evaluate for professional and personal purposes. Contact Carlos Miranda firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
