Using a storyboard for analysis

As part of the “Concept in 90” project goals I set for myself, I wanted to do a sample storyboard. Rather than a planning device that acts like an outline, this storyboard would be at the end or near the end so that students could use it to analyze their project in-progress or to analyze […]

Invisible writing
