Popplet is a “platform for your ideas”; from a blank sheet we can add Popplets to organize the information added. Each Popplet is an idea, concept, image, etc.
Popplet is a cloud application that allows you to graphically structure and organize your ideas. With Popplet you have the possibility of creating mental, conceptual maps, planks, murals, galleries, etc. Individually or collaborating with other people. A Popplet is a great board to hang, organize and relate your ideas.
One of Popplet’s biggest advantages is its simplicity and the intuitiveness of its interface.
