Open Source Organizer

This article will be part of a growing list of organizational tools to help you or your team work together. Much has been said of other programs, notably OneNote – but each of these other utilities have other features and may compliment programs you are already using. Here is a quick review of a program called VUE.

VUE is the Visual Understanding Environment. It’s a Windows program that’s a cross between a virtual corkboard, an outliner and a flowcharting tool, as you can see from the screen shot below. As a way to organize your thoughts, in the same way that you might do by shuffling pieces of paper around on your desk.

You can download VUE from http://vue.tufts.edu. It’s free, and open source, and runs on Mac, Windows and Linux. There’s also a 50-minute webinar at http://vue.tufts.edu/screencast/VUE-webinar-20090511.html, which you can watch if you really want to see just how powerful the program is.
