A few days ago we received an email from a teacher asking about timeline creation tools to use on Chromebooks with students. From the numerous web applications we have reviewed so far, the three tools featured below are probably the best ones to use with your Chromebooks. Tiki-Toki has the added advantage of 3D timeline view making your timelines appear more shining and lively.
HSTRY is a very good web tool for creating multimedia timelines in class. The process is very simple and easy. Just sign up either as a teacher or a student, choose the timeline you want to work on and start adding your events. You can add images, videos, and audio. The great thing about HSTRY is that it allows teachers to create a classroom and invite students to join it. Within this classroom, teachers will be able to share timelines with their students and view the ones they create. Teachers can also make their timelines interactive by adding questions for students to answer.
