Every eLearning experience should begin with a successful storyboard. But what is a storyboard? As the name suggests, a storyboard tells the story of your training course. It is the visual representation or blueprint in which the training dev eloper lays out the framework for the eLearning course that they need to create. This helps you illustrate your design and development process more efficiently and deliver engaging eLearning experiences to your target audience.

Usually, one page of a storyboard represents one slide of an eLearning course.  On the page will be the text, audio script, pictures and/or videos to be used on the slide.  Also, there will be navigation directions telling the develop where the slide should advance too.  There are a number of ways to create a storyboard, some simple and some more complex.  If you are looking to create a storyboard that is mostly text-based, Microsoft Word is commonly used. If you are looking to take a more visual approach, PowerPoint is a popular tool.

Storyboarding is not an easy process, but if you learn to create effective storyboards, your trainings will be more engaging and powerful.  We have storyboarding templates available so if you need some templates, feel free to get in touch.
