Storytelling Using Storyboarding: 10 Great Tools

Storytelling Using Storyboarding: 10 Great Tools | E-learning | Scoop.it
It has been a while since my last blogpost. Last month, I had the great honor of writing four guest posts on the topic of mLearning for ASTD. Furthermore, I have been studying hard to complete my postgraduate studies, which made me step aside from some other projects for a while. Having said that, last week I came…

Storyboard tools or any apps that save you time and help you create the stories you need to or want to tell are welcome. While not all the tools here will necessarily suited to your workflow or needs, at least one or two will. I've always found storyboarding a great way of learning new stories or presenting ideas in a clear, narrative manner -- always appreciated by my audiences. Have fun exploring these.

Liste intéressante d'applications disponible sur ordinateur ou tablette qui permettent de visualiser une trame scénaristique classique, d'écrire des histoires non linéaires, d'utiliser les bons formats de présentation selon la nature du storytelling (bande dessinée, film, vidéo, documentaire ...) ou d'inclure notes et dessins complémentaires.

Andy Kenworthy's insight:

This could be very handy for editing documents on the move when a desktop or laptop running the full suite isn't available and for collaborating with a team. I will be looking in to this further.

Microsoft’s Office Online is a completely free, web-based version of Microsoft Office.

This online office suite is clearly competing with Google Drive, but it’s also a potential replacement for the desktop version of Office.
Unlike all of Microsoft’s other Office products, Office Online at office.com is completely free.
This is Office Online’s biggest advantage over desktop versions of Microsoft Office.

It  can be used on all the PCs you want without paying for additional boxed copies or subscribing to Office 365, Microsoft’s subscription service for Office.
Because it’s a web application that runs in your browser, Office Online will run on everything, from Linux PCs and Chromebooks to iPads and Android tablets.

It doesn't require any special plug-in and works in any popular browser, including Firefox, Chrome, and Safari — not just Internet Explorer.
Should you use Office Online?

Well, that’s up to you. If you’d like a completely free version of Office it’s a compelling option.

On the other hand, you may need the more advanced features in the desktop version of Office.
NOTE: it does provide access to learners who can't afford the desktop version of office.

One issue of BYOD, and/or learners submitting assignments, is the different formats used.
By using Docs.Zone converter, practitioners are just one click away from changing the many different formats to PDF.
It saves them from the hazardous and daunting effort of installing different software for the accomplishment of this process.

   - PDF merge tool,
   - web page grabber,
   - PDF to Word file converter and
   - PDF to Excel file converter etc.

   - select the tab “convert file to PDF”,
   - brows for the file in their drives
   - click the “Select file” option, which adds the file to convert.

After the selection of their required file...
   - click the “start” button for conversion.
After the conversion is finished, users can download the file from the table titled “Inbox”.
