ELearning Challenge – Timelines

In this installment of the eLearning Heroes Challenges, we are making a timeline for something.

My brain went immediately to a timeline for Ged, the main character in the Wizard of Earthsea books. These books were my favorite when I was a little kid, and the first books where I grasped symbolism… maybe that’s why I was (among other things) an English major.

I began by finding a map on Pinterest.

I wanted some blank space to add my text, so I used a color matching website to get the exact color of the border of the picture.

I added a timeline and a title, matching the secondary colors from the image.

Then I used layers and states to develop the timeline.

The finished product can be viewed here: https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/crn3FdW1ZJ.
