What They Are

Official definition per "A panel or series of panels of rough sketches outlining the scene sequence and major changes of action or plot in a production to be shot on film or video."

A storyboard diagrams everything that will be contained in the program including what screens will look like, how the menus or navigation will work, what pictures/video will be seen (time and duration), what audio and/or text will be used either synchronously (time and duration) or hyperlinked.

A multimedia story is some combination of video, text, still photos, audio, graphics and interactivity presented in a nonlinear format in which the information in each medium is complementary, not redundant. So your storyboard should be put together with all those elements in mind.

Remember, a storyboard is more than an outline, it adds the life, or action, to what you plan on doing.
