There are primarily two approaches to online course development – rapid and systematic. The rapid approach is meant for smaller courses, for cases when time is less, for small audiences, etc.

For each screen, a storyboard displays the text, an explanation of the graphic, the audio script, and the video script. Storyboards should also encompass a visual and text definition of the interactions or games that will happen on each screen and the splitting that takes place as an outcome of a user action.
Quality Assurance (QA) primarily involves the testing of an online course. Also, if the objective of the course is to fill knowledge and information gaps, the course must work so well, the user interface, steering, and instructions are very much transparent to the learning process. This step-wise process ensures that all the learning objectives are met most effectively for today's learners.
