When we use multimedia-authoring tools, such as ToolBook, or Hyperstudio, to develop courseware or course segment, we usually go through the major phases of systems development. One of the phases is systems design, in which output, inputs, and navigation are determined and blueprinted, which, technically, are detailed in storyboards. Traditionally, storyboards can be 5 by 7 index cards, or certain paper forms. The current paper will present another means of storyboarding—using PowerPoint as a storyboarding tool. The components and procedures of storyboarding will be introduced. In six undergraduate and four graduate teacher-education technology classes, students designed multimedia courseware using HyperStudio/ToolBook with three different storyboarding methods—index cards, paper forms, and PowerPoint. The evaluation scores on four criteria—screen display, interaction possibilities, orientation and navigation—were compared. Repeated measures were used for data analysis. Differences were found among the groups with different storyboarding methods.
