      Description

      Hi,

      I have created a new filter to embed an MIT SIMILE Timeline Javascript interactive widget. It can be used to visualize temporal/ historical data - see attached screen shots. The data source can be a static XML file, or a dynamic Moodle Database activity.

      The syntax to embed a timeline, using a static XML is:

      [Timeline]
      title = Important inventions
      dataUrl=

      {PATH}

      /file.php/

      {ID}

      /

      {FILE}

      .xml
      date = 1870
      intervalUnit = CENTURY
      intervalPixels= 75
      [/Timeline]

      Notes:

      • It's a filter for the present, though I may look at turning it into a full module.
      • I've started off with the code at Bitbucket - I'm happy to import into Moodle CVS.
      • I've named it 'Timelinewidget' to differentiate it from the Timeline course format.
      • It needs some internationalization work - I'll do that shortly.
      • AFAIK, the previous attempt to integrate SIMILE Timeline in 2006, came to nothing - http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=58038 .

      I hope this proves useful. Let me know if you have questions or feedback.

      Thanks for your time,

      Nick
