xTimeline is a useful tool for almost any academic subject- every field does have a history. In editing, you create basic information about your timeline- a tile, description, and related URLs. Then for each event you add to a timeline, you enter a title, its dates, a description, and optionally upload an image, video, or flash content. You can edit/view an xtimeline via a time interface or as a list of events.

Published timelines can be accessed via a link or it can be embedded into your own web pages.

A timeline can be set up to be edited by more than one person, and when published it can be set to be public, or only available to those you have added to its access list.
