OkMindMap's new Ribbon. South Korean Mindmap gets better.

Checkout OKMindMap's new makeover!

Judging from the video by Dr Ho of South Korea, this new version of OkMindMap is a vast improvement over the earlier version which I blogged about here on or here on

Doesn't the Ribbon remind your of Microsoft Office products?

If you watch the Youtube video above, you will see that an iframe node, containing another website, is possible in this version. Amazing!

So, what do you think of the new OkMindMap?

Giving the Davo Smith's Realtime quiz a pie chart

I've blogged on Davo Smith's excellent Realtime Quiz for Moodle 1.9 before here. Today's post is about my latest enhancement to that plugin - a pie chart to visually show the breakdown of scores. After all, doesn't every table cry out for a pictoral representation like a graph or a chart?

Back in February 2012, I was tinkering around with a pie chart code I found on the Net. Here's what I came up with for the Realtime Quiz for Moodle 1.9.

Seems that the table data is crying out for a chart of sorts to display visually summary information. The pie chart code is by Rasmus
You can download the file It contains the two files, responses.php and piechart.php, which allows the pie chart to appear. Both files, when extracted, should go inside the /mod/realtimequiz folder.

Have fun with this new makeover for Moodle 1.9,
Frankie Kam
