Timelines are great tools to help present information using a sequential layout.  The example we discussed in class is “TimeRime” which can be found here: http://www.timerime.com

TimeRime is designed to make it easy to create web-based timelines using your own images and content. Timelines can easily be embedded into your site or blog, and can be placed into ‘comparison’ mode to let you compare events between multiple timelines.

Example timeline: Music and History Timeline (note that this timeline won’t load on an iPad)
