The Introduction to Scriptwriting course aims to help subject matter experts who want to create a blended learning course gain the skills to write an effective course script for the video-based portion of the course. The course first introduces learners to the concept of learning objectives and how to build them. It then explains how to develop a course outline on the basis of the learning objectives.

After that, the course moves on to various aspects of scriptwriting, explaining how to build a course on the basis of a course outline. It covers both structural and stylistic aspects of scriptwriting. Particular attention is given to making a script conversational, including relevant and illustrative examples, metaphors and analogies. The course closes by explaining the importance of getting external input from an advisory group, editing, and conducting a table read. It also explains what needs to happen once the script is finalised in order to prepare it for filming.
