This is my practice using Timeline JS (http://timeline.verite.co/). Click the timeline link above to view the timeline example (then use the arrow on the right to move through the timeline). This is super easy to create using a Google spreadsheet template. Wikipedia works great but not all websites I tried to link to. Embed code is provided so I will see how it works in Blackboard.
Wondering what technology trends to be ready for in higher education this year? The 2013 NMC Horizon Report predicts the increased importance of flipped classrooms, MOOCs, mobile apps, and tablet computing in higher education in one year or less.
If you are interested in learning more, consider attending the free Educause Live! webinar “The Horizon Report in Action: Emerging Technologies Today and Tomorrow” scheduled for March 27 at 9 am. (http://www.educause.edu/events/educause-live-horizon-report-action)
Note: “The NMC Horizon Report is an unbiased source of information that helps education leaders, trustees, policy makers, and others easily understand the impact of key emerging technologies on education, and when they are likely to enter mainstream use.” (http://www.nmc.org/publications/2013-horizon-report-higher-ed)
