Keying Tool

This insect key is an example of the kind of flash-based interactive tools that can be constructed for online use. It includes an interactive key that allows viewers to zoom in on photos to see greater detail, and a self-test feature for the key. Additional items such as glossaries, specimen descriptions and links to online, printable resources can easily be added to enhance learning.

Once a basic tool such as this key has been developed, it can easily be adapted to many other subjects with a shorter production time.
