There are now many options available online to create and display a historical timeline on the web.
Read my notes on timelines and look at some examples of timelines that I have listed there in my notes, which also list a variety of online apps (some simpler than others) that can be used to generate a timeline.
Create a short, online historical timeline. Your timeline must
- be devoted to some historical subject that has been approved by your instructor. (That is a pretty broad subject option; we should discuss your specific idea for your timeline.)
- have a short introduction in which you explain the purpose of your timeline project (Note that not all of the timeline apps allow you to create an introduction.)
- have at least ten events
- use good writing principles for your descriptions and explanations of the events
- include some images (When you use an image, you must include a citation/URL for the source of the image.)
- be published and available on the web. (Send the URL to your instructor for feedback and final grading.)
Note that all of the timeline applications have slightly different setups and instructions for using the free software. Please read those instructions carefully. One common feature is that after you have created a timeline, you have to "publish" it so that it appears "live" on the web for public viewing.
