I have coded an online countdown timer so that students can clearly see how much time they have left to complete an activity.
Unlike other online timers, this one has several distinctive features:
- Choose a soundtrack, accompanying video, or upload your own
- Add several timers to the screen which can run in sequence, or simultaneously
- Give a separate name to each timer (e.g. “Task A: Preliminary reading”, “Task B: Answer question 1” etc).
- Give your timers a unique URL or embed them into your own website, blog or wiki
