What is a storyboard?

A storyboard is a set of instructions that will be accessed by the development team. It is the blueprint for what content, images and interactions will be in the learning design and how it should look, and is compiled by the instructional designer/writer.

Storyboard templates are like all other training documents in that they are unique to the organisation, the people using them and the purpose of the materials development. Each multimedia team has its own style of storyboard they prefer to work with; some prefer to work with tables, others use a word-processed document, images or thumbnail sketches.
