How did I do it? As always, I’ve posted the steps below and a SCREENR.
 
Step One: Go to http://timetoast.com/ and create a timeline. It’s free.
Step Two: Publish and view the timeline.
Step Three: Click the Embed/Share link.
Step Four: Copy the Embed code.
Step Five: In PowerPoint, on the Articulate tab, click Web Object. Enter the copied Embed code. Remove everything except the URL, which starts with http and ends with numeric values (Example: http://www.timetoast.com/flash/TimelineViewer.swf?passedTimelines=245617).
 
Done! Ok, now let’s see this in action (if the SCREENR doesn’t display below, click here).

  1. Patti – thanks for a great share! I’d never heard of TimeToast.com, but now that I know about it, I can envision a variety of fun applications for work and personal projects.

    1. Thank so much, Diana! I’m glad it helped. After posting that article, I found another site that allows you to embed timelines and I like the look of those even better. It’s http://timeline.verite.co/. Beautiful timelines! Have an incredible day!
