Welcome to Ideaphora

Thank you for partnering with us to help grow young minds!

You can explore Ideaphora's concept mapping environment and try it out for your personal use using our 45-day trial. You can identify and connect concepts from our current library of digital content sources and create knowledge maps. Concept mapping helps learners develop a deeper understanding of the ideas presented in videos, ebooks, and other online resources; synthesize information from various sources; build new connections, and build lasting personalized knowledge.

Watch this video and learn how to create your first knowledge map!
