Step graphics (also known as steppers) are interactive explanations that make it easy for learners to sequentially walk through a process, workflow, procedure, or related items. They can be used for all types of learning interactions, from procedural training to interactive storytelling.

One of my favorite step graphic examples comes from the Washington Post.
