What is an elearning storyboard?
In multimedia fields such as movies, TV, animation, and elearning, a storyboard is a document that provides direction for the development of the desired end result. For example, in elearning, a storyboard provides slide-specific information about things like the graphics that will be used, the voice over and on-screen text, and interactions that may be present.
As the spot where thinking happens before production begins, the storyboard:
- Lays out the flow and sequence of the program based on a script
- Shows what will happen slide by slide
- Provides cues for those who will actually do the production steps
Who produces an elearning storyboard, and who is it for?
Typically, an elearning storyboard is produced by an instructional designer.
