This article outlines six free multimedia timeline tools that students can use for class projects. Each timeline tools allows students to use visual layout, text, and audio narration. The tools include
Meograph, Dipidy, MyHistro, xTimeline, Timeglider, and TimeToast.
It looks like two of the timeline tools listed in Byrne’s article (below) are no longer available. The article is still useful in that is shows off some of the features of the ones I’ve verified as still active.
If you use these tools for a multimodal project, please share your results with me!
