Interactive Timelines

 Creating an Interactive Timeline using HSTRY

I created a beautiful timeline on ‘The History of Snowboarding’, using my Google log-in to create an account. Then realised when trying to publish that I had opened a student account which means that you have to be part of an educational group and join a class. Looks like I’ll have to start again. Learning by trial and error is proving to be a time consuming process.

Here’s a mini version of the original timeline just to show how easy it is to create and share on your own blog post:

Another more complex tool for creating timelines is Timeline JS by Knight Lab

It is a useful too as you can incorporate a lot of information over a long period of time. The google spreadsheet is already provided when you are logged into your account. This makes it easy to create, adapt and personalise your timeline.

During the lesson I created this short timeline to illustrate my day at college.
