I Think “Tripline” Is Going To Become a Student & Teacher Favorite


Tripline just opened for business, and it’s a great map-making application. You just list the various places you want to go in a journey, or a famous trip that has happened in history or literature, or a class field trip itinerary, and a embeddable map is created showing the trip where you can add written descriptions and photos. You can use your own photos or just search through Flickr. Plus, you can pick a soundtrack to go with it as it automatically plays through the travels.

Here are examples of the ride of Paul Revere and the Lewis and Clark Expedition.

It’s super-easy to use, and the only tricky part is that you can’t add photos until after you create your trip and save it. That’s not a big deal, unless you couldn’t figure it out like me and had to contact the site.

I’m adding Tripline to The Best Sites Where Students Can Plan Virtual Trips, to The Best Map-Making Sites On The Web. and to The Best Places Where Students Can Write For An “Authentic Audience.”

Thanks to TechCrunch for the tip.

  1. This site does not allow you to delete your account online. You must send a request to support rather than press a button. I avoid sites that don’t have enough confidence to let its users have control of their own data.

  2. Right that they should offer it at some point, but dang if that isn’t the strangest just-launched-the-alpha gripe that I’ve ever heard. I’m not affiliated with them, but I’ve launched one or two things, and I’m guessing that they’ve got bigger fish to fry.

    Seems like this will be good for telling all kinds of travel stories, not just educational ones. I’m going to give it a try.
