Designing a Virtual Immersive Environment for Learning? Some Considerations.

Kapp Notes

Synchronous or Asynchronous. One of the first decisions to make in designing a 3D Learning Environment (3DLE) is to determine if the learning will occur in a synchronous environment led by an instructor or an asynchronous environment where the learner proceeds at his or her own pace. The debriefing process can be important for both a synchronous learning experience as well as an asynchronous experience. Don't forget to Storyboard. Supervising a construction project.

How to Design an Online Course in 2022? Best Practices, Tips & Templates


Even more so in an asynchronous environment, where instructors have to design the curriculum and course material ahead of time. A storyboard can help you collect and structure the curriculum while taking notes on the type of learning content you need to create.

ID Badges: My Experience with TIfPI’s Certification

Experiencing eLearning

Currently, the badges are all based on different types of deliverables: asynchronous e-learning, instructor-led training, coaching, job aids, community of practice, mobile learning, etc. You provide samples of content (screenshots, a page from a storyboard, planning documents, a short video, etc.) For example, a normal badge for asynchronous e-learning would be ID(AEL); an outstanding badge would be ID(AEL+).

The online course creators need to understand that, unlike classroom training where the material has to be understood by all at the same time, it’s not so for asynchronous learning.

It focused mostly on the asynchronous online course itself. Once the CDP was completed and reviewed by my stakeholders and subject matter experts, I like them to sign off on it, I began storyboarding the course. It is important to note, I am a "one person e-learning shop," so when I storyboard they are not handed off to developers or anyone else. Once storyboards were developed, and rewritten a few times, I then had the content, navigation, development tools needed, etc.

My e-Learning Toolbox

These posts are always interesting and helpful. It is a glimpse not just into their development tool preferences, but it also provides some reflection into the approaches they take in creating courses. Here is what I have in my e-learning toolbox and some notes on how I use these tools.


Learning and Development Glossary

Asynchronous Learning. Storyboard. A storyboard is an outline or a roughly sketched frame that helps with building the course. In eLearning, a storyboard is mapped on tools such as PowerPoint, Word and Visio.

Creativity within Constraints: When Cost, Resource Scarcity, or Deadlines Make Effective Elearning Seem Out of Reach

The Learning Dispatch

When there’s no instructor, however—when learning is self-directed, asynchronous, and delivered online—there’s a real risk of boring, click-next elearning that barely engages employee attention; training that hardly has a chance of changing behavior. A well-designed interaction catalog has a well-rounded approach, containing examples from storyboard pages and programmed template pages in a specific learning development tool (such as Articulate Storyline or Trivantis Lectora ).

How to Convert Instructor-Led Training (ILT) to E-Learning


Create a storyboard. The e-learning storyboard is like an architectural plan that helps create the entire course. Using a storyboard can facilitate the conversion of the ILT materials since it will help you (re)order the entire training content. Instructor-led training (ILT) is no longer the most suitable option for company training in our intensive daily routine.

Ultimate eLearning terms you should know: Part 2 (M-Z)


Self-paced learning: Asynchronous instruction that allows learners to control the pace and timing of their progress through course materials.

Last week, we decoded tongue-twisting eLearning terms from A-L.

Translating Activities Into the Virtual Classroom

ATD Learning Technologies

To aid us in mapping out this digital learning journey, at Virtual Gurus we use something called a wireframe, a document that you may refer to as a design document or a storyboard. We need to rethink how we provide knowledge to our learners—something we can do more effectively and efficiently by providing the knowledge piece in an asynchronous or self-paced way.

The Building Blocks of a Successful e-Training Program

ICS Learning

Storyboards – are a screen by screen treatment of the instructional content. The production team will use the storyboards to create all of the content that makes up the instruction. This is a very labor-intensive and expensive part of the job which is why it is so very critical that the storyboards be carefully reviewed and approved by the SME and client. Asynchronous e-Learning. The Building Blocks of a Successful e-Training Program. By Ed Gipple.

Design ‘debt’ and quality process

Clark Quinn

For big projects, we might create iterative representations (outlines, finished storyboards), and ideally we tune them once developed, but seldom do we launch, and then reengineer based upon feedback, unless it’s heinous. Another way we accrue debt is transfer learning designed for one mode, e.g. F2F delivery, and then re-implement it as elearning, synchronous or asynchronous.

In-house, out-house, that old question

Clive on Learning

Let's assume that by e-learning here, we're referring to asynchronous (self-paced) materials of some sort, much of which must be produced formally to meet the needs of large audiences, with high production values and with correspondingly generous schedules and budgets; but to complicate the matter, let's also assume there's a requirement for 'good enough' materials produced rapidly to meet the needs of smaller audiences.

State of the Authoring Tool Industry 2015

eLearning 24-7

I really can’t put into an actual area, but I am seeing an increase in the number of authoring tool vendors mentioning that among the objects you can add, one is Google Maps. I have to say, why would you want your self-paced course (aka asynchronous) include an object for a location on Google Maps? Recently added the ability to publish a storyboard in Microsoft Word. I’ll just say it right now, the industry as a whole isn’t doing much.

What Tools Should We Learn?


How nice would it be to simply work with a SME and write the content into a storyboard and pass it on? Or how nice would it be to be handed a well-thought out and detailed storyboard and simply build all the pieces around it? Fundamentally, eLearning is asynchronous most of the time, but at times there is need to conduct synchronous training.
