The Presidential Timeline of the 20th Century
Social Education Volume 71, Number 3, ISSN 0037-7724
This article describes the "The Presidential Timeline of the 20th Century," a newly unveiled website jointly created by the Learning Technology Center of The University of Texas at Austin and The National Archives' 12 presidential libraries. This web-based resource provides access to the continually growing store of digitized assets from the libraries' collections. The site reminds people that history is not simply the set of narratives they read in history books, but the experience of creating these stories from the essential evidence contained in primary sources. The goal of this project is to make primary and secondary source materials readily and freely available to students, educators, and adult learners throughout the world via a single unified and intuitive interface. The Timeline itself is deployed within a dynamic and visually engaging Flash-based interface that provides access to timelines of each modern president's life before, during, and after his time in office. These timelines, in turn, provide direct access to assets (primary and secondary resources), exhibits, and educational activities associated with specific events.
