How-To Videos

It's easy to get started with History in Motion.  These videos walk you step-by-step through all its features.

  • Creating an account and logging in is a one-time, simple procedure.
  • The videos in the Scenarios section show how to create and edit scenarios, the "containers" that organize events and timelines.  This includes adding sound tracks to scenarios and timelines.
  • The Maps section shows where to find historical maps and how to prepare them for and upload them to History in Motion.  Any image file of a map can be used in HiM -- it's very easy!
  • The Events videos cover all aspects of creating and editing History in Motion events.
  • The Timelines videos show how to use timelines to control and navigate through the flow of historical time.
  • The Miscellaneous section has videos showing how to import, manage, and use icons; and share scenarios using permalinks.
