The storyboard is the blueprint of your eLearning solution.

It is a plan that specifies the visual elements, sound elements, interactions and details relevant to the learning solution that will be developed. Simply, a storyboard outlines the learning content, screen by screen. Any developer should be able to pick up a storyboard and successfully develop the learning solution as it was planned.

Imagine building a house without any form of plan.

Imagine what could potentially go wrong.

Well, the same goes for eLearning. Creating a storyboard for your eLearning solution is crucial to creating a well thought out and effective learning solution. By creating a storyboard you avoid spending time developing a solution only to realise that the concept doesn’t make sense, important information has been left out or even worse, the learning objectives are not being met, meaning rework and a waste of many valuable hours.

Our team at Belvista Studios believe that the storyboarding process is one of the most crucial stages in the eLearning design and development process.

FAQ

  • Can I develop directly into development software to save time?

    Yes but before you do, at least scribble a quick plan down on some paper to view it through a different lens. Planning is a key element to your success. Some projects are straight forward or you’ve got a clear understanding of what the client is looking for and you might feel ready to jump on in, so do this, after scribbling your thoughts out first.
