This teaching tool example is similar to the South American Quiz example but it now is extended to include an interactive quiz. In order to use this interactive teaching tool an instructor again works only with text files: one that lists the names of the parts of the heart, another that lists the x,y locations of the markers. The folder on an instructor's web site now includes these two text files, the interactive teaching tool (Flash swf file) with associated HTML file, and an image file(jpg). A Flash tool to allow quick generation of the x,y coordinates of the markers is presently under development.

Note that any image in jpg format can be used ( maps, circuit diagrams, photographs, drawings, etc.)
