For a powerful and fun online timeline tool that lets you add videos, pictures, sound and text, try http://www.xtimeline.com. No programming necessary! There’re wiki like functionality in terms of collaboration and tracked changes.

I’d love to get your feedback on our tool.

If you look at SIMILE’s example of JFK’s assassination, you’ll see that each event is linked to a MediaWiki page. I anticipate that we could do something like this with PBWiki, where the page wouldn’t even have to exist before a student clicked on the link.

@tbrock: I’d not heard of BeeDocs–thanks. (I’ll need to see what additional capabilities the $40 gets you . . . .)

@Dance: That makes sense, too. My assignment is almost a stereotypical literature professor-attempt to gesture at historical context without profoundly derailing the literary content.

Teaching history, my first inclination would be to do it in collaboration with the class wiki, asking students to tie it to things in their notes.

Making things like the rows and columns clickable would only be possible with the use of JavaScript event attributes (e.g. onclick). That’s one of the drawbacks of using table markup.

I think an assignment on crowdsourcing a timeline of the Victorian Age sounds pretty darn cool, but then I do have a B.A. in History.

Thanks for the kind words about both S5 and the timeline! They were definitely fun to do and share with the world.
