P01 B.Y.O.L.: Storyboarding with Storyline

8:30 AM - 4:30 PM Monday, March 23

Most eLearning projects are subject to the restraints of time. With a tool like Storyline, it’s easy to jump right in and start developing to meet those deadlines. Without a storyboard, the current design compromises the outcome; there is no time to go backward and redesign the instruction. Invariably we look back knowing we could have done better if only given more time to design. A good design will arguably take more than half of the project timeline, but a good design maximizes the time once moved to development.

In this workshop you will explore the importance of the storyboarding/design phase and learn how much more efficient the development process can be when storyboarding is done well. You will discover how users of Articulate Storyline can refine the storyboard process in a way that directly reflects aspects of the tool, as well as specific instructions and guidelines for development of your project. You will leave this workshop understanding storyboarding and having created a set of storyboard templates that matches the development environment in Storyline.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to storyboard for Storyline from beginning to end
  • The different types of storyboards
  • How to create a style guide for an eLearning project
  • About asset management and progress tracking

Novice and intermediate designers, developers, project managers, and managers. While this workshop is geared for the beginner, this is not about how to use Articulate Storyline. Having experience and a good understanding of Articulate Storyline is a plus. 

Technology discussed in this session:
Articulate Storyline, MS Office.

Student technology needs:
A laptop with a licensed copy of Articulate Storyline, Microsoft PowerPoint, Word, and Excel.
