School Resources Part Five: Timeline and Screencast Creators

This is the fifth post in my series of back to school resources.  Two popular formats for student projects in my history classes are timelines and screen-casts.  My students have done some amazing narrations of web resources and images to create informative movies using screen-casts as well as how to videos.  Interactive timelines are always popular with students and the following are a list of sites that some of my students have used in the past.  Some of these sites are very easy to use and quite powerful.  I have also found that both screen-casts and timelines were not as popular at the begining of the year but seemed to become more popular as the year progressed.

Take a look at the list below and as always if you have any comments or websites sites that I have missed or ideas for these types of resources please let me know, as I get ready for the upcoming school year.

The following websites will help you create time-lines and screen-casts for your projects.
