Here's a way to organize your notes and study material that's fun and helpful to your learning at the same time. While you're studying or writing a term paper or homework, have you ever wanted to find a web page or a note that you know you once had but can't track down? Here's the answer. 3D Topicscape Student Edition (SE) is FREE computer software that can help you organize your study using 3D concept maps that you can fly though. It saves Web pages for you as you research, lets you organize your notes in 3D landscapes and helps you find things quickly and easily. If you like mindmaps, it can import them from FreeMind (free, 2D mindmapping software) and make a Topicscape from them. And it can take outline-numbered text and make a Topicscape for you from that.
When your study and research are done, it can export a text file which you can use as the starting point for a homework report or term paper. And you can keep your Topicscapes for reference and revision, where colors and position in the 3D concept map are a powerful memory aids.
3D Topicscape Student Edition (SE) is a flexible way for you to sort out your thoughts and approach on a new project even before you have collected any files or information.
You choose the topic names and organization and you can easily re-organize as you read, study and research when new information comes to hand or new ideas develop.
You drag web pages and text notes onto topics, and connect the topics yourself, so they will reflect your own understanding when you go back later to find them. Find a note by 3D Topicscape SE's keyword search or, if you can't remember the right words, fly around the 3D scene, tracking an item down by topic. Topics can represent concepts, subjects, categories, or classifications. And it lets you do that important thing in concept maps: Describe how two concepts are connected. For example, you can connect the concept Paris to the concept France with a phrase "is the capital city of".
