Instant mind map

In the journalism course we are constantly reminded that checking facts and looking at different media sources is crucial. Network Society and the Media is a broad module and I think I’ve got the right tool that will help your brainstorming sessions. You can thank me later.

While doing my research for this blog, I came across many different search engines, online journals and many other great innovative online tools. The one that really stood out and caught my attention was instaGrok.




instaGrok is a search engine that generates web related key facts, videos, images, articles and any other related content based on your query. Using only a keyword it draws a mind map and makes it extremely easy to use.

instaGrok is a perfect educational search engine that will make researching topics much easier. It is literally the simplest way to combine different media sources and opportunity to explore your chosen topic in more depth.

I would highly recommend to sign up and give a test run. I am sure this will be added to your tool base.
