Timeline JS is a free open-source tool used to create online, interactive and media rich timelines. Creating timelines using Timeline JS requires only four simple steps, allowing you or your students to focus on research, writing, creating, finding, and selecting media to present with each event on the timeline. Timelines can include text, images (flickr), videos (YouTube, Vimeo), audio (SoundCloud), Wikipedia entries, websites, Google Maps, and Tweets.
Once you create the timeline, you can embed it on any website, blog, on your Moodle site or even in a Moodle forum. Try it out, and if you or your students decide to use it let us know!
