Dandelife – Timelines made easy

Oh the things I could have done with this in history class.  Or any class now that I think about it. 

Meet Dandelife.  It’s your Web 2.0 timeliner.  Register for your free account and then get rolling.  All you do is type in a title, a description and drop in a date.  It plops it down on a timeline.  Magic! 

Of course, it’s bright and colorful with a dandelion theme to it.  But what puts a smile on my face is that you can integrate in YouTube videos, photos from Flickr, and import events directly from any RSS feed.  Not only that, but you can view your timeline from within the site, via an easy to embed widget, or you can even grab yourself an AJAX version. 

So whether your students are planning out their autobiographies or they’re creating timelines for historical events, Dandelife is worth a look.

    Thanks, Steve! I have been looking for something like this since the DEN Leadership conference last summer and our training on Timeliner (can’t afford it!). This looks like it will do very well. Keep those ideas coming! Tim
