Digital Tools: Timeline & Map

Story Map


These tools bring back memories from past digital courses like DS106 and Intro to Digital Studies. It was cool getting familiar with them again, but I was a bit disappointed that I could not embed my work on my blog (I even installed the iframe plugin). Other than that small issue, it was pretty straight forward and easy to use as I remembered.

Both my map and timeline are based off the captures/escapes of the notorious drug kingpin, “El Chapo”. Each tool allowed me to add the necessary text and media to present my topic visually and clear.

For my groups project, I think we want to incorporate similar elements on our website, such as a timeline, maps and good quality photos with clear and precise text. Our aim to have a nice clean layout with no clutter.
