Since 01.06.2008 the University of Göttingen participates in the leasing model for public universities and colleges of the Mindjet GmbH. Therefore the popular mind mapping software MindManager is available free of charge for all institutes, employees and all students. The license agreement with Mindjet is extended until 30.04.2021.
Download of the software
The software MindManager can be downloaded for both Windows and Apple MacOS in German, English and French from the following download page:
The software can then be installed on all PCs of an institute, on all the PCs of employees and on all PCs of students. If the software is to be used via the free evaluation period, a registration key is required.
If the required software cannot be downloaded via this specified URL, the software can also be purchased from the Mindjet GmbH for free as a trial. In this case, however, a registration is required. The activation key supplied by the GWDG then allows the use of this version.
