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.

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!
