March 26, 2016
Below are two very good Chrome apps you can use on Google Drive for collaborative mind mapping. Students can use them in their classroom projects to pool information, share ideas and discuss their work in real-time. The apps provide students with online whiteboards that are equipped with a number of interesting features that include real-time collaboration, upload images and drawings, add text and images and many more. We invite you to check them out and share with your colleagues.

1- RealtimeBoard
‘RealtimeBoard is your online whiteboard for visual team collaboration. Add pictures, mockups, drawings, videos, sticky notes, office documents and Google Drive files on an endless canvas, discuss it with your colleagues, and enjoy the smoothest real time visual collaboration without emails.’ Watch the video below to learn more.


2- Coggle


'Coggle is a good Chrome app for creating mind maps. It integrates seamlessly with Google Drive and allows you to organize and share your files with your Google contacts the way you like. Coggle provides a wide variety of features that make it easy for users to create beautiful mind maps and share them with others. Interesting among these features is the collaborative functionality which enable you to invite colleagues and work on the same diagram in the same time. Coggle supports picture integration allowing you to add as many pictures as you want to your mind maps. Additionally, Coggle is able to track your editing history and through ‘history mode’ you can access and change the recent edits you have added to your diagrams. You can also ‘look through the history of your diagram to see who changed what, and when! Just enter the diagram history mode to find out.’'
