Timetoast - Digital Timelining



Timetoast is a great website that allows you to create online timelines. You can add dates, type notes, and even add images for each event. Then just mouse over a marker on the timeline and view the notes and image for that event. You can share the link or embed the timeline into your webpage. Timelining is a great tool not only for history, but also for sequencing events in a book, or planning to write a narrative story. Check out these examples below.

  1. I think TimeToast is great. Do you have your students complete one? Do you know of a way to disable comments?

  2. Good question Anne. I don't see an option to disable or moderate comments. That could be a problem. I like its simplicity though. I'll have to check back to see if they make that change.
