  1. Thanks for this post. Could you please also take a look at the new tool for creating e-learning storyboards? It is called Storyboarder Pro, here is the link: There’s a set of customizable storyboard templates and course flowchart and structure management, all based on MS Word. Do you think the tool could be useful for you? Your opinion would be valuable! Thanks.
