This material was originally only seen on desktop and laptop machines, at increasing screen sizes and resolutions.
The use of the mouse and the mouseover concept allowed interaction and added eductional value.
Nowadays there are more tablet and smartphone users, so some aspects of display may not be as reliable with smaller screens. Please let me know if there are specific pages where I should be concentrating my efforts at improving the situation.
