We made a timeline!
Well, it’s a work in progress, but we think it neatly illustrates some of the key events we’ve been reading about in Rodger Streitmatter’s Mightier Than The Sword: How The News Media Have Shaped American History.
Wanna make your own timeline?
Here are some resources I’m sharing at a Faculty Development Workshop in May 2019.
- View the ENG369 Timeline assignment for ENG369
- Try entering timeline content about your favorite TV show here.
- Learn more about Creative Commons licensing to be sure you aren’t violating copyright when you embed someone else’s images.
- Get started with basic HTML code and have fun picking out background colors for your timeline.
Couldn’t I just use some other web tool?
Sure, there are plenty of other timeline tools and collaboration tools out there. (Sutori, for example, looks pretty cool, I admit.) But, I like this approach because (A) it’s open-source and non-commercial, and (B) only the instructor needs an account –one she likely already has, at that– and (C) the instructor retains control over what gets published.
If you decide to make a timeline with TimelineJS and Google Forms, let me know!
