Course design idea - Large interactive infographic

I am going to try building this for a future course coming up (I am making an information course on our Employment Process - from applicant to new hire) and I think this might be a fun way of doing it.

I love infographics - I frequently use this site (http://visual.ly/) as a source of inspiration in my courses, and I was thinking how could I build an actual infographic that could be informative and fit into a 540x720 frame.  It came to me - Zoom Regions

Here is the plan for the course:

  • Create an infographic  - do not know what the actual size will be.
  • Create several layers that will overlay information
  • Use Zoom Regions to navigate around the graphic.

Thinking something along the lines of a giant treasure map with a lot of key points...

thoughts?
