Learning and insight comes from integrating information and making connections. PersonalBrain's flexible linking technology enables users to gain deep insight on ideas and retain knowledge faster
Marina del Rey, CA (PRWEB) September 14, 2009
TheBrain Technologies announces the expansion of the PersonalBrain product line into the education and eLearning market. With discounted pricing for students, teachers and school administrators, TheBrain teams with leading educational software reseller Creation Engine, Inc.
"We are thrilled to offer PersonalBrain's interactive visualization and information management capabilities to our academic customers," said Stephen Lai, Vice President of Creation Engine, Inc. "With PersonalBrain students get the big picture and access to all relevant information. The net result is significant improvements in understanding and shorter learning cycles on complex subjects. PersonalBrain's context-rich connections enable people to see the implication of ideas and that in turn fosters new connections that lead to more discovery, knowledge and creative output."
Over 85% of Ivy League universities use PersonalBrain software in applications including research and analysis, interactive course syllabuses, information management, and concept and mind mapping. Users can connect their ideas associatively and create unlimited networks of information that concretize thinking, illustrate complex relationships and integrate disparate information resources. In contrast to static mind maps or folder structures, PersonalBrain's dynamic visualization shifts contexts, enabling multidimensional data organization and attracting the attention and focus of users. The program's visual dynamics and unlimited linking capability makes the software a popular choice with educational content providers including Encyclopædia Britannica and the James Burke Institute.
"Learning and insight comes from integrating information and making connections. PersonalBrain's flexible linking technology enables users to gain deep insight on ideas and retain knowledge faster" said Shelley Hayduk, Vice President of Marketing at TheBrain Technologies LP. "With the addition of Creation Engine, Inc. as a PersonalBrain reseller and our new academic discounts, even more students, teachers and administrators will be able to capture and leverage knowledge for themselves and to share with the greater academic community."
