"Inspiration 9 is familiar but improved. It takes information to a higher level, giving students the tools to analyze, synthesize and present their thoughts to others. It also helps linear learners create mind maps and visual learners create order. What a great way to bring different types of learners to shared understanding!"

"The new Map View in Inspiration 9 is easy to use and understand. You don’t have to give up what you know about Inspiration diagrams and webs; this is an additional tool to view concepts and the relationships between them."

"Inspiration 9 is much more versatile; it lends itself to communication via the new Presentation Manager which allows students to design their presentations as a thoughtful process and then share it with others without having to create everything from scratch. I really liked its ease of use."

"Students are often very creative, but they can’t make their ideas form a logical pattern. By using Inspiration, it’s easy to brainstorm and then, with one click of a button, they have an outline for a story, an essay or a simple research paper. This difficult job is reduced to an enjoyable task that they can accomplish with minimal assistance."

"Inspiration is easy to work with, but challenges my students to think logically and helps them improve their problem solving skills. This program is a great tool for both my teacher education students and their students."
