WikiBrains is an interesting concept that allows students to brainstorm and use the new tool for a more collaborative learning process. The Israeli based start up in Tel Aviv  has just secured $750,000 in start up money to continue with a great idea.

From the article.

Information on the Internet grows at an innumerable rate, and the plethora of text, images and videos can be overwhelming. Just ask any college student staring at a blank document about the frustration of connecting the pieces to find coherent ideas.

Israeli startup, WikiBrains, hopes it has a solution to ease that pain with a “knowledge discovery tool powered by the world’s largest brainstorm,” says co-founder, Leon Markovitz. Based in Tel Aviv, WikiBrains is part of the MindCET edtech accelerator program. The startup, founded in 2012, announced it has raised $750K from MindCET, Peter Sieradzki and other private investors.

WikiBrains offers an digital canvas where users can browse, modify, or create their own “mind maps,” a collection of related topics and sub-topics that are generated by users.
