Early in our discussions Cynthia mentioned Capzies as a way to create multimedia timelines. This timeline tool also rolled in via Twitter: TimeRime . OurStory.com is another I've tinkered with in the past.
I know of someone here in BC working up a history of the post-secondary Educational Technology Users Group so something like OurStory might work well for that. Hmmm, I'm thinking it would be a neat project to use one of these tools to document the history of online educator communities for the museum.
Sometimes a review of development tools and examples created using those tools can spark ideas for content. Any examples to share?
