My quest for the perfect time line tool continues! Dipity has some great features. It excels in ease of use and offers easy loading for:
  • Title
  • Date
  • Description
  • Picture (upload or url)
  • Location
  • Video (YouTube, Google Video, Hulu, Vimeo, FLV, MP3, imeem, or MetaCafe URL)

It has a clean look and would be perfect for any Social Studies or Literature class - but really any creative teacher could find a use for it.

The big drawback at this time is that they free version is filled with ads. Dipity has told me that they plan an education edition at little or no cost Q1 or Q2 of 2010. Watch for it put it to use in your class once it arrives.
