Storyboarding – Challenges in the Process and Solutions


Though an established crucial step in e-learning development, Storyboarding is also often forced to be the most hurried one. There are various stakeholders working together on a storyboard – the client, subject matter experts, graphics team, programmers and of course, the ID team. But overall, it is the responsibility of the ID team to present a strong and meaningful storyboard. If the storyboard fails to capture them, it is bound to create conflicts at a later stage.

Demystifying Cognitive Load Theory

ID Mentors

Consider that you are teaching a new recruit in your organization the storyboarding process in ELearning. The same content for someone who is trained in the storyboarding process, and has also written a couple of storyboards, would appear less daunting, because he/she has developed a mental schema through learning, practice and retrieval. In our example, we can provide the Storyboard format as a job-aid that can be referred to by the learner while working.

Question Design for Formative Assessment

ID Mentors

This makes me wonder if the questions are added to tick off an item in the “Storyboard Checklist”. What’s in a name? I belong to the school of thought where formative assessments are not called “Knowledge Check”, “Quick Quiz” or “CYU”. Some may say, “What’s in a name”, but I do think that referring to formative assessments as CYU, Quick Quiz and Knowledge Check is one reason why our questions have been reduced to checklist items. However that is a debate for another day.

By passing on some of the responsibility to specialist designers, I was able to take on more of the storyboarding and development work myself. And I should also give props to my 'niching mentor' Philip Morgan, who has played an valuable part in helping me reach this decision. In this article, I will explain why choosing a focus is the next logical step in developing our eLearning business. When I started freelancing, I wasn't quite sure in which direction I wanted to go.

So, you want to be an Instructional Designer?


As with any role, there are always certain skills that you’ll need to learn ‘on-the-job’, and so in the years that have followed I’ve had to add an extensive knowledge of contemporary technology and learning theory to my skill set – additions that have come from a mix of mentoring, reading and assimilation. It’s also important to know the possibilities and limitations of your technology, as what you create in storyboard format has to translate well to the screen.

Demos are effective at leveraging mentors at an organization. A quick video of an experienced employee performing a task or procedure can be an ongoing resource for new hires, and save mentoring hours in the long run.

That’s where the storyboard comes in.

Online Course Design – Insights from Award-Winning Instructors


This is why it is recommended to start with a road map (perhaps a storyboard) before uploading material on a platform (we will discuss storyboards in a later article). Before drafting the storyboard, consider what your learning objectives will be for each module. Students need to feel supported; they need to understand that they do indeed have a mentor by their side. How do you design a course? How do you assess students? How do you teach online?

Also, try to fit all of the above in a storyboard. A common mistake we see in most eLearning programs is that the program itself is available to learners, but when mentors are needed to answer questions after the program is completed, they are nowhere to be found.

A lot of hurdles need to be toppled during the cross-over and, of course, many hearts need to be won.

Although I am firmly convinced that sketching is far and away the best method for coming up with ideas for new engaging interactions, the tradition of detailed storyboarding as the design “tool of choice” for instruction is so deeply entrenched in our field. The designers’ mentor always makes an appearance rather early during the time allotted. Last month, I had the honor of speaking at the 2016 ATD TechKnowledge Conference in Las Vegas.
