Chronozoom and Pixorial

I have shared different timeline tools in the past and Chronozoom is another example.  It has existing timelines to explore, but it now has the option for students and teachers to create their own timelines.  One feature that really stood out to me was the ability to overlay multiple points in history on the same timeline.  It is a great way to share many historical events which happened on the same day in history on one timeline.

My second tool this week is a free video creation website.  The site is called Pixorial and has the feel of iMovie.  It is free to use and has a teacher account option with 30 GB of free storage.  Students can upload pictures and raw video using the computer or Pixorial app.  You can also layout and edit your video in Pixorial with a very intuitive user interface.  The part I liked most was that it connected to Dropbox, Google Drive, Skydrive and more so you can easily access your pictures and videos.  This could be a great way to allow students to create movies and publish them online.
