Best in History Online: HSTRY

From time to time, we like to take a moment to highlight fantastic history sites from around the web. These are websites that – much like Origins – seek to bring history into public conversation.

This month, our Best in History Online highlights the innovative new tools and timelines at HSTRY!

HSTRY relives historical events through a first-person perspective to bring history to life. Combining interactive timelines with images, videos, and engaging stories, HSTRY is a digital platform for learning history in the twenty-first century and promotes collaboration and engagement in the classroom. It provides interactive storylines of historical events for both elementary and secondary schools across the globe in line with their vision to become the leading digital learning platform for history.

Listen to their co-founder and CEO, Thomas Ketchell, tell the story of how HSTRY began and how historians can start to use digital tools to engage their audience with history.

Go check out their creative, first-person timelines and discover new ways to engage with HSTRY!
