Interactive Timelines

When presenting an excess of historical background, an interactive timeline can be a handy way to organize it. The user clicks on a date and information about what happened then appears. Like a regular timeline, this helps provide context and connect different events together. The advantage of an interactive timeline is that, for every date, a lot of information can be provided. Timelines can also be used as a way to navigate through a multimedia story.
