Visualise & Develop Ideas. Understand & Retain Concepts.

Inspiration makes it easy to create webs, idea maps, mind maps, concept maps, graphic organizers, process flows, and other diagrams for thinking, organizing and writing. Use these proven visual thinking and learning techniques to brainstorm ideas, explore and explain relationships, and integrate new knowledge with what you already know. Inspiration encourages deeper, more critical thinking and that improves creativity, comprehension and retention.


visual learning examples


Plan & Organise

Take notes in either visual or outline form - and switch between either when studying, to improve retention. Brainstorm using a visual diagram, then transform it to outline mode to plan your essay and add content. Send the finished document to a word processing program to complete your writing.


Visual learning example:The Glass Menagerie


Communicate & Present

Move your visual or outline notes straight in Inspiration's built-in Presentation Manager. A full suite of presentation tools makes it easy to add the finishing touches.
