Flipbook-Style "Small Multiples" For Instructional Design

Sixties City uses strips of flipbook-style images to demonstrate dance moves, which Signal vs. Noise points out is more efficient than video clips. This could be a great improvement on the step-by-step "videos" of AnimatedKnots - instead of tiny numbered steps, use the smallish images, perhaps lined up in multiple rows. The user could then allow it to flip through, watching the action, and focus on difficult transitions by rolling over the individual images.

A loop of two or three identical image strips would also make a great zoetrope project...
