The storyboard is a graphic representation of a course that includes all of its components. The storyboard is used in all creative fields and genres and platforms: games, films, books, movies, instructional videos. This article demonstrates learning and training storyboards deliverable by instructor led, blended learning, and e-learning platforms. Please see “Resource” list for a variety of styles, additional genres, and more information.
The storyboard sensitizes the instructional writer/designer to potential problems before learners become involved. A learner, e-learning designer, SME (Subject Matter Expert) and stakeholders evaluate the course contents by reviewing the storyboard. The contents are reviewed for accuracy, currency, appropriateness, clarity, impact, relevancy and feasibility. Figure 1 and Figure 2 are shots of storyboards I have designed.
