• An investigation into the concept of mind mapping and the use of mind mapping software to support and improve student academic performance.

      Holland, Brian; Holland, Lynda; Davies, Jenny (University of Wolverhampton, 2004)
      This project set out to investigate if the technique of mind mapping could be used to improve the study and planning skills of second year Digital Media students from the School of Art and Design (SAD) and first year students on the History of Computing module from the School of Computing and Information Technology (SCIT). Both sets of students were shown how mind mapping could be used to plan the different types of work that they needed to undertake for their modules. MindManager software was installed in selected computer labs and the students were given tuition on how to use the software.
