Welcome to ALTEC's ThinkTank

ThinkTank is designed to help students develop a Research Organizer (a list of topics and subtopics) for reports and projects. Based on the subject assigned, the students can refine it by choosing from a variety of suggestions and by using a random subtopic generator. This helps students learn how to refine a subject so that it is more manageable for Internet research.

ThinkTank can be used alone or with another ALTEC product, NoteStar. Once students have developed their topics, they may export their topics to NoteStar. The only requirement is that their instructor has already set up NoteStar Accounts for them.
