Dipity is a cool online service that allows you to create a timeline. This can be automated using a variety of feeds (e.g. blogs, Twitter, Flickr etc) or you can add information manually. I've set up a Creative Tallis Dipity account. Here are the details:
At the moment the information is popultade via feeds from this blog, our Twitter page and our new Flickr site. If you'd like to post to the Flickr site, the login details are as above. I've only had a quick play with Dipity but I can see lots of useful applications. Each manual post can have several sources of information associated with it - video links, pictures, text and, crucially, a date or period of time. I am currently attempting to create a blog so that students who wish to study for an A level in History of Art can do so via the internet without having to attend any formal lessons. I will be using Dipity to keep track of the learning and post useful resources.
What uses can you think of for this tool?
