MindManager has helped me break down lecture content, technical engineering concepts into very small bites. The value I found was in its ability to then link these small knowledge bites to other knowledge bites within the same or different domains all being done in a visual layout. The system was instrumental in enhancing my deep understanding of technical concepts because of the capabilities it renders users to creatively modify knowledge visual bites they created around a specific topic.
I hated MindMeister despite all the glory it gets online. The tool was not so user-friendly to me. I struggled a lot using the topic and subtopic boxes. Perhaps it was because I had been so accustomed to MindManager that my mind got used to expecting that the same tools and features should be available and easy to use.
