Anthony Bates, author of Technology, e-learning and distance education (2005) states that audio (via radio broadcast) has been used in education for over seventy years. The introduction of CD-ROMs in the late 1980's mitigated most of these issues, and in a sense were the hardware breakthrough that presaged the beginnings of e-learning as we know it today. It was the emergence of the internet that genuinely facilitated audio and visual media-based learning.

A storyboard should contain slide information, graphics, audio and video instructions, On-screen text, navigation instructions and interactivity instructions.
