What exactly does "dynamically" mean?

This is said in practically every video...

"Then we can load this dynamically!"

"Dynamically update this!"

What the heck does that even mean?

It basically means to do something in real time, or a more "technical" explanation according to the Oxford Dictionary Definition "a manner characterized by constant change, activity, or progress"
