Flickr – the image sharing website, can be used to very good effect as a teaching resource, with one such use being the creation of simple hover and reveal resources. Very good if you want to identify parts of say a piece of equipment, location of muscles in the body etc. All you need to do, is take a photo, upload it to Flickr, then use the ‘notes’ tool to add notes to part of the image. When the student views the image, they can hover over the regions and see the notes.
To see an example of this, click on the image below

If you hover over the gyro keyboard in bottom right corner of image, there is then a link within that note to a more detailed picture.
There is also the ability to leave comments – which could be useful.
