Timeline of Management Theories
Design Pattern Tags: Timeline of Management Theories
Timeline of Management Theories creates an interactive timeline to illustrate a particular concept where it is important to understand relationships, progress or development over time. Timelines can represent evolution; progression; change and history.
Timeline of Management Theories has been constructed to show the relationship or development of concepts and theories over time. Web based interactive timelines provide a visually appealing, engaging container for multiple types of media and written material to be represented chronologically and collected in one place.
Most timeline tools will let you add multimedia resources such as YouTube or Vimeo videos, images, blog posts or infographics, open educational resources or
creative commons licensed resources.
Timeline of Management Theories is closely tied to constructivist learning theory in which blocks of knowledge are used to construct a larger understanding.
Prior to Semester
Outline your timeline on a piece of paper or in a Word document before building it online to see any gaps
Decide on the multimedia resources, for example, Tiki-Toki (A) or Timeline JS (B) which are user friendly and also create beautiful and engaging outputs
Tiki-Toki ( http://www.tiki-toki.com/ )
Tiki-Toki is a web-based timeline tool that requires you to set up a free account
Select the wizard to set up the parameters for the timeline. The wizard will ask for:
Select one of the built-in images and give credit for the image you are using
Once you have set up the initial timeline, go to the main interface, where you will be able to:
add more stories
add colour-coded categories which are displayed at the bottom of your timeline
control all the timeline setting
export your timeline to a spreadsheet or a pdf
Add all the details, including image, video or infographic
Continue to do this for all the events you want to include.
With a free account, you cannot embed the timeline in your Blackboard course. However, you can incorporate a timeline in your PowerPoint presentations ( http://www.tiki-toki.com/blog/entry/embed-powerpoint/ ), using a plug-in called LiveWeb.
Timeline JS by Knight Lab
Timeline JS ( http://timeline.knightlab.com/ ), as a tool, is freely available with an open source code and it can, if necessary, be hosted by RMIT University. It has a beautiful engaging inteface. It doesn’t require a sign up. And finally, if you can use Google spreadsheets, you can use Timeline.
Setting up the timeline
Create a Google spreadsheet based on the TimelineJS
Click Use this Template which will make a copy in your RMIT Google account
Publish the spreadsheet to the web by using the Share options. Ensure that you check “Automatically republish when changes are made.” Uncheck all other boxes.
Click “start publishing.” This will give you the URL to embed in your HTML file.
Copy the spreadsheet URL into the text box at http://timeline.knightlab.com
Copy the embed code that is generated for you, into the content area in Blackboard where you would like to display the timeline
Anytime you find new resources to add, just add them to your Google spreadsheet and the timeline will automatically update. It is a dynamic artefact that you can build over time.
Ask students to create a timeline, either as an individual or as a group. The timeline can be used for an assessment task; used in a reflective journal or a discussion area for peer review.
