Tech BFF: Time Toast
BFF is an acronym for “Best Friend Forever.” These websites and tips are so good that they will become your technology BFFs!
Time Toast is a free web app that easily creates a timeline around any event or set of events. Signup (or login with Facebook), create a new timeline and assign it a title, and then begin entering events and/or time spans.
Each entry requires a title and date. Time Toasters may optionally add text, hyperlinks, and images. When timelines are complete, there is an option to publish the timeline publicly on the site. The source code may be copied and pasted for embedding in blogs and other websites. Works with Moodle coding as well.
I use Time Toast for my online courses and find it is effective, easy to code, and update.
Classroom uses include: chronicling historical events, biography highlights, life cycle stages, students’ personal events, fundraising timeline, product lifecycles, and school year calendars.
