Learning outcome actions

Part A – Complete the storyboard spreadsheet template

  1. Create a storyboard for one learning pathway, by completing the appropriate spreadsheet template which you can download from the Tasks page. Your storyboard should:
    • Provide the title of your learning pathway
    • Specify the overall aim(s) or learning outcome(s) for the course or learning pathway
    • Specify the learning objectives for the different phases of the learning pathway
    • Incorporate formative or summative assessment for the learning pathway
    • Provide an overview of the e-Learning activities for the learning pathway. You should aim to include at least four or more e-Learning activities. Add additional rows in the spreadsheet for activities if needed.
    • Identify the content resources planned for the respective learning pathway(s). At this stage of the design process, you can reference resources generically, for example:
      • A description of any images you would like to include, for instance “Photo of computer keyboard” or “Diagram depicting the seven steps of photosynthesis”. At this stage, you don’t need to link to the actual images
      • Any media you plan to re-use or create, for instance, “Audio recording of a job interview” or “Screencast video to demonstrate plotting a bar chart” (You must include at least one video in your storyboard because you final project must include a short video.)
      • Print resources, for example “Worksheet on multiplying fractions”
  2. As author, please apply a Creative Commons licence at the bottom of your spreadsheet to provide permission for re-use as OER.

Part B – Publish a blog post and share your storyboard

Prepare a blog post with three sub-sections:

  1. My storyboard for a learning pathway
    • Provide the title of your learning pathway and describe its purpose in a sentence
    • Upload a copy of your completed storyboard on your personal blog via the Dashboard –> Media –> Add new options
    • Provide a hyperlink to your storyboard within the body of your blog post so other learners can see what you have created
  2. My learning reflection
    • Share a brief reflection of your storyboard development process in one or two sentences. For example:
      • The aspects you found easy and/or challenging
      • Any advice you would offer learners completing this activity in the future
      • Anything else you would like to share
  3. My storyboard self-assessment
    • Share a self-assessment of your storyboard (see below) justifying why you awarded yourself green or amber
  4. Remember to apply the “EDT4OL” tag to your post. (This is needed for harvesting your post in the course feed.)


Conduct a self-assessment of your storyboard, using the traffic light rubric below, to evaluate if your resource achieves a green or amber rating below. If amber, consider improving your resource to achieve a green rating.

If you were working as a member of a team, you should assess the learning pathway you developed. Consider getting together for a web-conference call to discuss your self-evaluation with members of the team, and invite them to make suggestions for improving the design of your learning pathway.

If you meet the criteria for the ‘green’ or ‘amber’ ratings, as assessed by your course moderator, you will meet the requirements for the award of the badge. If your work is assessed by the course moderator as falling within the ‘red’ rating, you will not meet the requirements for the badge on that occasion, but you may be given an opportunity to revise your work and re-submit.
