  • Wanted: very easy to learn mindmapping software

    Something that runs on windows, results can be printed, maybe could also generate an action list but most of all is easy for an advanced middle-aged person like me to learn and not expensive. I am doing a community service project helping some high school students brain storm their community service activities and I want each one to walk away with a useful record of our brainstorming. I think that if they see me using a mind map to record the data they generate once I get them talking about their interests and talents and resources, then they will want to pick up the tool themselves and use it. Thank you advance.

    Freemind

    Hi,

    I would recommend Freemind. It runs on Java, doesn't cost anything, is easy to learn and can all the things you mentioned.

          Xmind

          I used Freemind for many years and it is really a good tool. Xmind however offers more possibilities to display your mindmaps and that´s why I prefer it. Also very easy to learn. Worth checking it: http://www.xmind.net/
