This online tool is a timeline builder, formerly known by the unwieldy name - Mnemograph.
I love history - and I love visuals, but timelines always seem a bit awkward. Despite scientists' speculations, time is very linear to me, and it is tough for me to get a perspective when a timeline stretches across pages and pages in a text, or it is so tiny as to be meaningless. This tool tackles the dilemma, by letting the user zoom in and out to organized and explore events.

TimeGlider has great potential for presenting information, and to allow students to organize and present information on their own. Why, you could even use it to organize events and project, or even develop a genealogy project. Let us know if you take it for a spin!
