Principal function(s): Timeline creators

An online app that allows users to create interactive multimedia timelines and share these with others. Images, texts, audio, and videos can be embedded in the timeline and then viewed in 3D. It is a very useful tool for teachers or students who want to highlight the chronological aspects of a particular topic, in a creative, stimulating, and didactic manner. It could be especially useful for teachers who want to ask students to create their own timelines e.g. for group projects. Evaluation: A very user-friendly tool with an intuitive interface.

Cost: Free with registration + premium plans available. Free version limited to one timeline per user
