Getting started with Inspiration

For visual mapping, outlining, writing and making presentations, Inspiration® 10 is the ultimate thinking and learning tool. Brainstorm ideas, structure your thoughts and visually communicate concepts to strengthen understanding with the Diagram and Map Views. To take notes, organize information, and structure writing for plans, papers and reports, use the integrated Outline View. With Inspiration's Presentation Manager, transform your diagrams, mind maps and outlines to polished presentations that communicate ideas clearly and demonstrate understanding and knowledge.

When you work with visual representations of ideas, you easily see how one idea relates to others. Learning and thinking become active rather than passive. You discover where your deepest knowledge lies, and where the gaps in your understanding are. When you create a visual map of ideas, you can recall the details better than if you had read a paragraph. That's because you can see it in your mind.

If you have an idea that you want to expand, whether it's an idea for a written document or a plan to map out, Inspiration can help you organize your thoughts and save you time. Use the Diagram or Map View to develop your ideas, gather research and make connections—in other words, to clarify your thinking.

Use Outline View to organize your ideas in a hierarchical form. Inspiration's outlining environment is perfect for creating structure for written documents, speeches and plans.

Inspiration's Presentation Manager provides all the tools you need to create organized, polished presentations and final projects. Develop slides from content automatically generated from your work in Diagram, Map, and Outline Views.
