Storyboards are so boring. But I do want to talk about the process with how I design learning – which is where storyboarding general takes place.
- Get the raw content. Anything from artcles, PowerPoint drafts, SharePoint sites, PDFs, Intranet links, compliance articles, standard operating procedures, help documents, current reference guides.
- Organize the content. Before the learners know which trach is MRI compatible, they need to know what a trach is. AMIRITE. There is a logical order.
- Remove and terms and definitions and put in in a pre-test or a game as the entry levels/pre-reqs. This will help cut down on seat time and help your knowledgeable agents engagement levels up.
- Put together an outline of the topics and chunks. I’ve start putting this into my eLearing programming now too. Or a Word document/PowerPoint for instructor led content.
- Make that into a fun way to memorize or anagram it. A start of a job aid!
- Add some high level content.
- Send it to the SME.
By the time this is done, the course is around 70% done, and the SME has something to work with. I find they have a faster turn around time with a more finished product than a rough version of a rough version.
