Description:

Given the differing viewpoints of certain American presidents, it’s hard to think of some of them being in the same place at the same time. Fortunately, the dedicated individuals at the Learning Technology Center in The University of Texas at Austin College of Education have done just that. Working with the Presidential Libraries and Terra Incognita Productions, they have created this visually stimulating and wonderfully informative interactive Presidential Timeline. Upon entering, visitors can explore the timeline at their leisure, all the while learning about significant events during each of their presidencies and about what they did after their time in office. The “Exhibits” area is another rather fine area, as it features profiles of various events that defined each president’s time in office, such as the crash of the stock market during President Hoover’s four years in the White House, or John F. Kennedy’s work in establishing the Peace Corps.
