Whether you prefer scripts, blueprints, or rapid prototypes, chances are you’re using some type of storyboard to plan and organize your e-learning projects. In most cases, successful projects depend on the designer’s use of a storyboard.
Storyboards are also one of the most popular discussions in our forums. New designers ask to see examples, download templates, and learn more about workflows and using storyboards. Experienced designers share their favorite tools and tips while debating the use of storyboards and prototypes.
Regardless of your experience, storyboards are a critical element in the course design process. And that’s what this week’s challenge is all about!
