Collaborative Storyboarding

Why Collaborative Storyboard Technology Is Mission Critical

This is an excellent article extolling the virtues of collaboration for storyboarding your courses (and a little push for storyboarding itself). It doesn’t specifically promote a single commercial product, though it does highlight XStream Software’s tool at the end, but rather focuses on the generic benefits of collaboration in the Instructional Designer/Subject Matter Expert interaction.

I’m an easy sell for this kind of thing, but it certainly sold me on the concept. Less administration, more confidence, more accountability…. I’m in.

I was hoping to find a good, fully mature tool. I’ll have to keep my search going. However, I’m starting to investigate wikis and this seems like a good use for the right wiki. Unless I really luck out, I don’t think a wiki will do as good a job as a focused tool, but it may be close enough.

One thing I really like about this article, though, is the summary sidebar, “Storyboarding at a Glance.” It does a good job of providing the overall structure for the article’s arguments.
