Under the Weather - Time for a Post #edtech

I missed another post last night - exhaustion set in and I was out by 7 o'clock.  And then today got away from me.  So no time for a double post - but I'll make it up to you tomorrow.

There is just enough time in the day.  But there's always time for a good timeline!  And that's just what XTimeline gives you.  XTimeline allows you to create interactive timelines that a visually appealing.  You can even upload your events from a CSV file or even an RSS feed (first time I've seen either as an option for timeline creation.  XTimeline allows you to create a custom URL for your timeline and of course you have the option to embed it once done.  You can also download your events from your timeline later as a CSV or in XML format.  You can also embed flash, photos and movies directly into each event.  Overall, XTimeline is a very clean, very easy to use timeline generator.  The only thing I would like to see improved is more "themes" for how the timeline is displayed.  Otherwise, XTimeline is a fantastic option for timeline creation.
