How to Create a Multimedia Timeline on HSTRY

Last fall I review HSTRY when it was still in beta. Recently, it lost the beta album and opened to everyone that wants to use it to create multimedia timelines. One of the features of HSTRY that I love is the option to insert quiz questions throughout your timelines. HSTRY supports the inclusion of video, audio, and pictures throughout your timelines. The video embedded below provides a short overview of how to create a HSTRY timeline. The video is from HSTRY’s extensive student guide.

As a teacher you can create an online HSTRY classroom in which you can view all of your students’ timelines. Building questions into a timeline is a nice way to have students check their understanding of the significance of events in the timelines you share with them. You can build-in explanations of the answers to your questions.

HSTRY is free to use to create and share timelines. They do offer some pre-made timelines for sale.
