Constructing Digital Timelines: Design and Tools

Wednesday, March 13, 2019 - 11:00am to 1:00pm
Room 309, Howard-Tilton Memorial Library
During this interactive workshop, attendees will learn the fundamentals of constructing timelines using the Knight Lab timeline tool. We will explore some of the benefits and challenges of plotting events chronologically in a digital space and ways to share/embed the timeline on website such as Drupal. In the first hour, attendees will format their data into a spreadsheet template. In the second hour, attendees will create their own digital timeline using the tool.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own digital images.

Presenter: Jacquelyne Thoni Howard, Manager of Technology Initiatives at Newcomb College Institute
