HSTRY Timelines

HSTRY is a free timeline creation tool that will work on a laptop, Chromebook, or iPad. HSTRY allows users to build timelines in a vertical scroll format, similar to that of a Facebook newsfeed. You can add text, images, videos, quiz questions, and audio files. As a teacher, you can create an online classroom and view all of your students’ timelines.
