Software

A core part of my work for more than two decades now has been development of software to support reasoning, argument and critical thinking.  This work has resulted in:

Reasoning PowerPoint App (2016)

The Reasoning PowerPoint App makes diagrammatic mapping easy in PowerPoint.  The App is built on top of SmartArt. It incorporates both the CASE schema and the “ABC” (Argument, Bridge, Contention) schema.  It is the tool used in a range of online offerings launched in 2016.

CASE Word App (2015)

The CASE Word App is an add-in for Microsoft Word supporting argument mapping within Word documents.  It is based on the CASE (Contention, Argument, Evidence, Source) argument mapping template.
