Hello all. I'm new to and am amazed by what a tremendous resource uwebd is. I've been in web development since the late nineties and have been working for a University for 6 years. Can't believe I didn't come across you guys sooner!
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone was aware of any software, freeware or open source flash that might help me to create a timeline of the University's history
. I just don't have the time or staff to create one from scratch, and the resources to outsource the work just aren't there.
Examples I've seen include http://www.csun.edu/50/timeline
and while I especially admire the design of the latter, I just need something bare bones: a way to assign text and images along an interactive timeline.
I've seen services like Dipity and Timetoast, but don't know how good the tools are (especially when it comes to seamlessly embedding the resulting timeline).
If anyone has created a timeline for their University's site, I'd appreciate any advice you can give.
