Tiki-Toki is a free web-based timeline creator. But what does that mean exactly? The timelines you can create with Tiki-Toki move across the screen left to right, allowing the user to embed images, audio, video, and text. What I love most about this tool is the visual design elements that allow for the creation of beautiful timelines. And as we know, the visual rhetoric of a piece can make or break its effectiveness and credibility.
The newest feature Tiki-Toki offers is 3D, which allows your timeline to move front to back while time still moves left to right. Sounds confusing with mere words, so have a look at this history of the Tower of London – tiki-toki.com/timeline/entry/137152/Tower-of-London-3D.
