    Hello,

    I have a question. I am just now noticing the myhistro plug in for Edmodo, which confuses me regarding the terms of service. MyHistro.com terms of use clearly state that students under the age of 13 can not use MyHistro; it's in ALL CAPS in the first paragraph. However, Edmodo does allow students under the age of 13 to use the product by placing the liability for security/legal compliance on the parent/teacher/school/district. There seems to be a conflict here. Can I start using MyHistro with students under 13? Am I disallowed to use MyHistro.com with students under 13? Am I allowed to use the MyHistro plug in within Edmodo for students under 13? What's going on?

    Is there a way to combine multiple timelines into one?

    My students are unable to post photos on their timeline events. I tried it with both MyHistro & MyHistro Extended and indeed when attempting to add a photo to the event, the file uploads extremely rapidly, but nothing shows up in the event itself. Sorry to always be the bearer of bugs, or issues, but this is a really valuable application, and I don't want my students to get discouraged from using it. Any help would be appreciated and thanks for your time and effort!

    Whenever I, or my students, click on MyHistro Extended through Edmodo, it opens up a blank page. MyHistro works, but the extended edition does not. I tried to uninstall the Extended version from my classes, but when I tried to reinstall it to my classes, it wouldn't let me. It isn't just one computer or browser, this is classwide.

      Thank you for reporting. The glitch is fixed now. Hope you can confirm this.

      Unfortunately, it is still doing the same thing to me. I have refreshed and reset my cache, along with used chrome and safari browsers, the same popup still occurs.

    I have created and assignment that requires the students to work with a partner. We were able to add the co-authors easily but it won't let anyone besides the creator add or edit the events of the timeline. I was wondering if there was a way for me to fix it or if was a technical issue the program. Thanks.

  • Mr. Schultheis's avatar

    I've created the assignment and in my test student account (I created a dummy student account so that I can see what they see), I'm unable to submit the timeline as an assignment. When I click submit, nothing happens. Could use some help making the turn-in feature useful. Thanks!

      Sorry to hear about this. Please, refresh your browser twice. That should clear the cache and remove the issue. Hope it helps.

      I refreshed and cleared the cache through the browser options, still when I click Submit, at the top of the page "Thinking..." appears and then disappears just as quickly, but doesn't submit. I've tried on different computers through different web browsers (Chrome, Safari). Still no luck.

      I know that the students can save it to their bookbag and then upload it from there, but I was hoping to avoid extra steps.

      Thanks.

    I am trying to create an assignment for my students to create and submit a timeline. When I click on the app the "Post: Note Alert Assignment Quiz Poll" does not appear. Is there another way to create an assignment?

      Hi! Not sure if I understand the problem correctly.
      If you wanted to create a Test with myHistro Extended, you should first add some timelines from myHistro´s archive to your Library. Or you can create some new ones. Then just go to Tests and click on Create new test.
      If you wanted your students to create and submit a new timeline, you just have to do normal procedure in your Edmodo page (click on Assignment etc).
      If your problem is different, please tell us what app you are using (myHistro or myHistro Extended) and specify your problem a bit more. Please
      more...
