circaVie

CircaVie is a Web 2.0 tool that allows you to create an interactive time line. You can create a free account and set up your profile and then start creating your time line. It allows you to tell a story through pictures and videos and you add text descriptions to talk about what the pictures and videos mean to you. The first time line I created was on the albums released by Michael Jackson. I got pictures of each of the album covers and put them in order of release date.

If you already have an AIM account or an OpenID, you don’t have to create a new account, you can use that user name and password. I already had an AIM account to use which made it very simple. You can embed the time line in your Web page or just link to your time line. This is a great tool that can be used for making illustrations of any chronological content in education and best of all it is free. I spoke to some of my colleagues who said they had some issues with lag on the Web site and not always posting their content correctly, but I have not run into any of these issues so far. It is a very user-friendly site.
