Introduction to ADDIE

This course will provide you with an overview of the ADDIE model of instructional design. It is targeted at beginners, so no previous experience with ADDIE is necessary to complete this course. 

Introduction to ADDIE: What's it all about?

ADDIE explained

ADDIE

ADDIE stands for Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation. Traditionally, ADDIE was followed as a linear process, starting with Analysis and ending with Evaluation, but in recent years that has changed. Technology has changed the corporate environment forever, not only in the way we do our work but also the rate of change that we experience. For this reason many Learning and Development departments have shifted from a linear process to an iterative one, where the stages are more fluid and you may cycle back and forth between stages as you build, evaluate and re-design material. When first beginning with ADDIE it's best to understand it in it's traditional, linear form. That is the approach we will take throughout this course.

Analysis

Analysis

Before you begin you must first understand

Analysis is always the starting point for an Instructional Designer. The goal of the analysis stage is to create a training plan that will guide the work through the rest of the stages. To do this an Instructional Designer asks questions to better understand the learners and their training needs.

What is the ultimate goal of the Analysis stage?

  • Understanding your learner
  • Identifying the training need
  • Creating a training plan

Design

Design

Before you build, you must have a plan

The main goal of the design stage is to determine the method of training and then create a plan for the content, as well as the look, feel and functionality of the training. Depending on what kind of training you're creating, this is often done in the form of storyboards and prototypes.

It's go time!

The Develop stage if when the actual learning solutions are built. The main goal of this stage is to use the documents from the previous stages to efficiently build the learning solutions. Depending on the delivery method chosen, development work can range from creating a facilitator guide to programming elearning courses.
