ArcGIS Online & Dynamic Map Service to toggle layers

Hello -

We have a desktop application that consumes ArcGIS Server Dynamic Map Services, and it allows the user to turn on/off the different layers on the fly.  Can this be done in ArcGIS Online?  As I understand it the options for ArcGIS Online are tiled map services and feature services, neither of which fit the same mold as a dynamic map service. 

I'm sure I could create 1 tiled map service per layer that we want to toggle, and then manage a multitude of services in place of 1 service with multiple layers.  Is this the best substitute?  (Although it doesn't allow parent/child relationships, which are possible using layers within dynamic map services).
