Mind Genius Download

University of Stirling staff and students can download a full version of Mind Genius 6 (Windows only – sorry Mac users).

Mind Genius  – allows users to organise ideas and quickly generate keywords by converting them to a mind map layout.  This enables the user to build up written material, by adding notes and additional ideas and link them together.  With Mind Genius you can easily design clear structures for pieces of written work and help to avoid blank page syndrome.   

When you download Mind Genius it will act as a trial version valid for 30 days. The University of Stirling licence code will then need to be entered to carry out “Activation” of the software by using your University of Stirling email address while online (other email addresses will not work with this licence code).

The licence code can be obtained from the Disability Service or from Information Services.
