The Social Timeline - Intoloop

The Social Timeline - Intoloop | Searching & sharing |

This looks like a great tool to use over the summer holidays to create a digital record of your summer and to keep your English active. It could also be a useful tool to use as an ePortfolio of your learning. Upñoad videos and information into the timeline. Students can describe processes through time, or narrate events.

Create A Multimedia Timeline To Curate Stories That Have Strong Chronological Narrative: Timeline

Create A Multimedia Timeline To Curate Stories That Have Strong Chronological Narrative: Timeline | Searching & sharing |

Robin Good: Timeline is a Javascript open-source solution that allows anyone to create a visual timeline that integrates text, tweets, images, maps, audio recordings and video clips on an infinite scrollable bar. 


A project funded by the Knight News Innovation Lab, Timeline works great with stories that have a strong chronological narrative. It does not work well for stories that need to jump around in the timeline.


Mashable Sonia Paul writes about it: "Timeline is similar to Storify in that it allows users to aggregate media on the web, it differs in its operation.


With Storify, users can drag and drop content into a post.


With Timeline, users can either embed the code onto their website using JSON, or — if they don’t want to mess with any coding — they can fill in a ready-made Timeline template on Google Docs.


The project is currently hosted on GitHub, and users can find specific directions on how to both embed the code and use the Google Doc template there, too.


Future plans for the project include support of more media type, as well as iPhone compatibility, B.C. time support and better seconds and milliseconds support." 


Here is the GDoc ready-made template:
