World History Time Lines

shapeimage_17.jpg

The World History Time Line series allows students to interactively explore important dates relevant to this history course. Pop-ups show maps of political boundaries as well as photos of art and other cultural artifacts found from the era.

The time lines made use of a reusable architecture which minimized production of these eight customized learning objects.

The project inspired the creation of a tool designed to allow faculty and students to create and save their own interactive digital time lines which include a variety of media (coming summer 2007).

Currently these activities are only available to students at Miami Unversity.
