Build Better Training with an eLearning Storyboard

As our jobs become busier and attention spans shorter, many Learning Leaders have been presented with the challenge of finding ways to make their companies’ training programs more impactful. One training format that can help meet this goal is eLearning. 

eLearning offers various engagement tools that allow you to design more effective online courses. More than just being fun and entertaining, with the proper use of the available eLearning components you can create content that holds the interest of learners, leading to greater understanding and retention of the material.

With eLearning, there are many exciting options to choose from – compelling video and other media, captivating imagery, thought-provoking interactive exercises, interesting branching scenarios that vary based on the responses of participants, not to mention gamification elements of points, badges, and leaderboards.

This is great, but how do you pull all these elements together? And how do you ensure they are supporting the training goals, addressing knowledge and skills gaps, and meeting the learning objectives?

The answer is an eLearning storyboard.

An eLearning storyboard allows you to take your training program from concept to reality. It is a tool for organizing the many parts of the course to ensure you have all the appropriate elements available. It provides a blueprint for all team members -- subject matter experts, instructional designers and developers -- to ensure everyone understands the project and knows what they need to do to keep the project running smoothly.
