I recently stumbled upon this lovely looking site: http://www.tiki-toki.com/.
It’s a web-based timeline software that not only looks great, but is easy to use as well. You sign up for a free account and your good to go historian! Dig up that history-teacher-childhoodream and make your own timeline.
You can change the background, add pictures and even videos! So, if you happen to have a history task you have to do, or you simply love history (is this possible? Let me know in the comments!), check out this awesome site!
