One of the biggest challenges that came along with digital age is overwhelming information that must be hashed out and put in a logical format to be understood. It poses more challenge when trying to communicate and share this information with others effectively.
However, if you combine the power of visual mapping with collaborative work space, then you have a powerful communication tool that can create, manage, and share information effectively and visually in group setting.
Collaborative work space can be viewed as a central processing unit where group members input information that can be processed logically and presented visually so that any member can access, view and understand information with purpose.
MindMapper collaboration is a free online collaboration service that can have up to 10 users per session. As MindMapper is a PC based program, all users must have PC to access the collaborative work space. If you don’t have MindMapper program installed on your PC, then collaboration module will be installed to run the session.
- Users with MindMapper 16 Arena and Academic can create and join collaboration session
- User account must be created to use the collaboration service
- You must have stable internet connection.
- Previous version users must upgrade to 16 Arena
- NOTE: If you are invited to a collaboration session but do not have the program installed on your PC, then a collaboration module will be installed with your permission.
