Recently InSync Training worked with a multinational software company to maximize the value of their existing learning content by transitioning it to the virtual and blended classroom.

Many other organizations are undergoing this evolution, with seasoned learning professionals assisting the process.

In the spirit of the modern classroom, a learning environment defined by the accessibility of knowledge, we will detail these challenges and our approaches for overcoming them in a six-part blog series.

This is the first installation of the series.

41675931_s.jpgStoryboards go back to the 1930s when a Walt Disney animator began using them to organize cartoon scenes. In eLearning, a storyboard is simply a script that includes text, images and notes about how a learner is expected to interact with a learning module.
