🔖 Timelinely

Bookmarked Timelinely (Timelinely)

Create interactive video stories on Timelinely. Timelinely empowers people to go beyond just video.

Highlight interesting parts of a video on a timeline with interactive comments, pictures, links, maps, other videos, and more.

This tool reminds me of a somewhat more commercialized version of Jon Udell’s Clipping tools for HTML5 audio, HTML5 video, and YouTube. I wonder if this is the sort of UI that Hypothes.is might borrow? I can definitely see it being useful functionality in the classroom.

  1. I looked for, and didn’t find: 1 a way to mark the start and end of an annotation target, 2 a standalone URL for the target. For me, at least, these are key requirements for open web annotation of video. The clipping tools implement 1 and 2 but only so others can improve on them!

  2. Hi Jon — you can 1) specify the start and end of an annotation via dragging the arrows, and 2) you’re correct we don’t currently provide a standalone URL for the target. The latter is something we are working on. -Dan
