Tiki Toki {Interactive Timeline Creation}

Tiki-Toki is a virtual and interactive timeline creator. One of the best parts of creating a timeline online is that students have the ability to add direct links to websites (which provide additional information on a topic), add links to or embed videos (which bring the events to life, and to add pictures that stick with the viewer (even after they have stopped looking at the timeline).

Tiki-Toki makes it easy to add all of these elements and more. Students can pick the time frame that their timeline encompasses, and then get to work on adding interactive elements to their timeline. Not only can students complete these timelines as project based assessments, but you, as the teacher, can create these awesome interactive timelines for students to visit throughout the course of your lesson to learn more about the topics that you are covering in class.

Try it out & let me know what you think,
