Generating intermediate frames between two images to give the appearances that the first image evolves smoothly into second image.
Presentations where navigation is in a forward and backward direction.
(Web Based Training)
Training delivered via the Internet.

(Universal Serial Bus)
A port on a computer used to connect peripheral devices, such as move, keyboards, and flash drives.
(File Transfer Protocol)

In typography, adjusting the space between two certain characters (e.g., between K and V).
