Collaborative Web Based Multimodal Texts for Educators, Historians and Social Scientists
Web based Multimodal Texts which combine geographic and temporal data have immense utility as pedagogical tools and more generally as a medium for visualizing research results. Current web applications for creation of this class of content require significant technical knowledge. They are also difficult to use collaboratively or modify without prior technical experience, making them difficult to use in a classroom environment. ng-TimeMap is an open-source HTML5 web app which seeks to provide an intuitive interface for creating and disseminating these types of text.
