In Part 1 of this blog series, I shared my experience about the content acquisition and analysis phase for creating a scenario-based course. In Part 2, I shared how I created a storyline and identified the critical steps in it and further started storyboarding and shared the introduction screen with you. When storyboarding for this course, the single most important thing for me was to keep it conversational and follow the actual lingo that the customer care representatives are supposed to follow.
