eLearning Storyboard Design with Thomas Toth
Before a single line of code is written or image created, all elearning starts with design documents and course outlines.
However, taking those outlines and documents and turning them into a storyboard that can actually be used by a developer is something else. A good storyboard will help a non-tech savvy sponsor/designer see and understand the project before a line of code gets programmed. It is extremely important to use the storyboard to map out the entire project and should include graphic descriptions, voice over descriptions, animation and interaction descriptions so the developer doesn't have to "think."
During this session, Thomas will discuss the process of turning design documents and outlines into a working storyboard, share storyboard templates and best practices, and discuss the challenges of real world storyboarding.
