A Dynamic Layered Image is a useful tool for presenting steps in a process or for showing options in (or outcomes of) a process. Layering images allows students to see connections between elements. A Dynamic Layered Image activity consists of a panel and image combination where the user checks layers that are listed in the panel and sees the corresponding portions of the image highlighted. Each selected layer in the panel remains on, allowing students to see multiple layers at once. The base image remains visible at all times.
The Dynamic Layered Image is great for calling attention to certain parts/features/functions within an image. For example, a Dynamic Layered Image might highlight different systems within the human body. Each layer in the panel could show a different system, and as the user clicks each layer, that system is highlighted in the image of the human body.
