We bought a site licence to MindGenius - cost about £2500 in perpetuity - then everyone can use, dyslexic or business lecturers!

Subject: Specialist software site licences and assistive technology technicians
We have a number of non-DSA dyslexic students who require mind mapping
software. We need to make a decision as an institution as to site licences
and costs. Does anybody have any examples of how they have gone about this
in their institution.
We currently have no individual identified who is reponsible university-
wide for maintaining and training staff and students on assistive
technology and are hoping to appoint. Does anyone have any job
descriptions and where is that person based in your institution ie in the
computer services or disability services.
