I’ve been experimenting with Dipity, a new website that allows you to build interactive timelines. Open a free account, create a new topic, and then upload text and images (from a file.) You can view your topic as an timeline or flipbook. You can even geocode your events and view the project as a map. You are allowed to set permissions for viewers and editing rights. I created a sample timeline “How did the roles and rights of women change at the turn of the 20th century?” Note: One drawback for classroom use – banner ads appear on the page and I can’t vouch for what might show up.
Dipity allows you to configure the display of the topic and copy and paste the embed code into your page. You should be able to click the embedded image below.
