How do I use the Timeline in myWorld History Atlas?

Last Updated: Dec 10, 2018 11:35AM AEST

The history Timeline feature allows you to select a particular span of time. When you select a particular time span or period using the Timeline, the globe will only display case studies and maps that are relevant to the selected time span.

You can move the Timeline sliders to the very edges of the Timeline to display case studies from all time periods.

To display case studies from a particular time period:

  1. On the myWorld History Atlas HOME screen, locate the Timeline at the bottom of the screen.

  2. Move the Sliders on the Timeline to define a period of time to explore.

  3. Alternatively, in the Your selection text fields, enter a beginning and end date and select BCE (Before Common Era) or CE (Common Era).

  4. Your Timeline must be maximised to display case study thumbnails. To maximise your Timeline, select Maximise Timeline located at the top left of the Timeline. Once maximised, you can minimise your Timeline by selecting Minimise Timeline.

  5. To open a case study, select a case study thumbnail from those displayed below the Timeline.

    Please note: You can scroll through to see all of the available case studies for your selected period of history and/or roll your cursor over any of the case studies to see where in the world these historical events occurred.

  6. You can also search for studies using the Select depth study option list. Selecting a particular depth study from the list will show you all of the available studies for your selected depth study from the Year 7 to 10 Australian Curriculum for History.
