Videos on getting started as a student.
As a teacher, you just have to create an account, set up your classes, and give your students the access code.
HSTRY's support page
Includes great information on how to get started, how to create a timeline, and all the things you can do on the site
What can you do in a HSTRY timeline?
- 1. Introduction - Insert a body of text to introduce what the timeline will be about.
- 2. Text Item - The basic item. It enables you to add, you guessed it right, text.
- 3. Image Item - This is the basic text item, plus an image.
- 4. Video Item - Add life to timelines by incorporating videos. Currently, it is only possible to share videos from YouTube.
- 5. Audio Item - There are some great historical recordings out there that can add another dimension to a timeline. Upload mp3 files either from your computer or share them from the web by inserting the link (from freesound.org, for example).
- 6. 'Did You Know?' Item - A 'Did You Know?' item is like an image item. You can add text and an image, but the emphasis is on introducing an interesting fact or something surprising that your students would not necessarily know.
- 7. Multiple-choice quiz Item - This enables you to introduce a form of assessment for the students in the timeline. Once you have input the question and the possible answers (you can put as many possible answers as you like), select the correct answer by clicking on the tick to the left of the box. This will then turn green.
- 8. Heading Item - Useful if you want to divide the timeline into different sections. One good application of this would be if you were writing a timeline about the 13 day Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962. Headings are therefore a good way to structure a timeline.
- 9. Conclusion - A nice way to wrap up a timeline and finish on some more general considerations. Next to the text box, you can add an image.
- FFA Historic Moments from 1917-2008 (a chronological timeline of important events)
- Each section of the "timeline" can be a different category (it does not have to be chronological)

Prezi - CLICK THE IMAGE TO VISIT THE SITE
Prezi is a presentation tool that can be used as an alternative to traditional slide making programs such as PowerPoint. Instead of slides, Prezi makes use of one large canvas that allows you to pan and zoom to various parts of the canvas and emphasize the ideas presented there. Prezi supports the use of text, images, and videos and also provides a collection of templates to choose from to help new users get accustomed to the interface.
