Building Interactive and Media-Rich Timelines with TimelineJS
Coming up in the Digital Scholar Studio’s online space, Wednesday Nov 17th, 2:30-3:30pm! Join us for a hands-on virtual workshop on how to build an interactive timeline.
TimelineJS is a free and open-source digital scholarship tool that allows for anyone to build interactive and media-rich timelines using a simple Google Sheets template. These timelines can be accessed via their own URL or easily embedded into other websites or projects. This workshop will be a hands-on introduction to creating timelines using a variety of online media. We will also discuss ways TimelineJS can be used in an academic setting. Participants don’t need any previous technical experience, but should have access to a Google account to use Google Sheets if they would like to follow-along with the demo.
