Timetoast allows users to create online timelines that can contain single events and time spans. Timelines can be embedded into other sites. Each event or timespan can contain photos, weblinks, and/or descriptive paragraphs. Some classroom applications include biographical information on important historical figures, a Country’s history, historical Presidents, music through the decades, how technology has evolved, and many more.
Embed code cannot be obtained until a timeline is published and made “public” on the site. Once the embed code is obtained, the user can make a timeline “draft” form again, timeline is not publicily visible, and the embed code still functions. There is an “Uncategorized” category that does not list projects on the website, so if a user wanted less visibility, uncategorized would be the preferred method. Flash 9 or higher is needed for site to work properly.
