This free online course shows you how to create timelines on the Web using the online application called XTimeline. A timeline is used to show events along a period of time. It is typically a graphic design showing a long bar labeled with dates and events labeled at points where they would have happened. Timelines can use any time scale, from minutes to years to millions of years. Timelines are often used in education to help students understand events and trends for a particular subject. This course is ideal for learners who want to create timelines but lack the skills or knowledge to do it.
