Two samples of instructional use of image maps from John Prusch of Excelsior College:
1. For a course in phonetics, several linked Web pages enable the learner to HEAR sounds associated with phonetic symbols in a variety of configurations:
2. A Page from the Babylonian Talmud: "Click on any portion of the …image, …[for] when and where the text was composed, its contents and purposes, …"
Prusch comments: "Image maps are an under utilized but quick and easy tool to use in teaching. They provide a simple means for explaining, illustrating, or annotating difficult concepts, processes, and examples not only with text but also with images, video, and sound recordings." MP3 Audio Version
