Strategic planning for course development

It all started with a working group of keen scripters from TfB and SE who were challenged to set the scene with an appropriate script that would detail the key messages and information that TfB wanted their bus drivers to know – within a less than 15 minute session.

We had to build a full session and then break it into 7 different site instances and then tailor each instance to suit their specific environment. There was a heap of information to get through in a short amount of time, so we hit the ground running.

Using the information provided by Brisbane City Council we start writing the script while keeping in mind their request to during of the course to roughly 30 minutes.

Once the script is written it is time to storyboard it. This is where our ideas are first sketched.
