TimeGraphics

Principal function(s): Timeline creators

TimeGraphics is a web-based tool for creating interactive timelines that visually represent historical events, project milestones, or personal narratives. Users can input dates, descriptions, and images to generate dynamic timelines on the plaform. TimeGraphics offers a limited free version and requires users to sign up for an account to create timelines, but not for visualising them. Evaluation: TimeGraphics is a useful tool for making interactive timelines that can be used to visually represent historical events, project milestones, or personal narratives. Its main drawback is that, with a free account, timelines are always set as public and can be accessed by anyone.

Cost: Free with registration + paid plans available.

Latest addition to the ICT-REV inventory

TaskCards (Virtual pinboard for content creation/sharing and for collaborative working)

TaskCards is a GDPR-compliant digital platform which was specifically created for educational purposes. It helps create and manage virtual pinboards, i.e. canvases where content can be uploaded and shared. Users can create and customise their pinboards by attaching text, images, videos, links and files, together with changing their background and much more. The privacy settings of these pinboards - or parts of a pinboard - can later be modified. TaskCards offers a free limited version that allows users to have up to 2 pin boards. While teachers have to register to create pinboards, learners can access them directly via link or QR code. TaskCards is developed by the German firm dSign Systems GmbH.... View details
