We discuss. Register. Over the years the systematic ADDIE process has proven successful in design and development of learning. However, can maybe ADDIE is too “organised” in today’s world of swift change.

Is ADDIE failing to effectively meet the new demands for learning. Do you agree? Do ‘rapid / agile’ approaches work?

Moreover, I would urge all learning folks to join this group—just to keep learning and evolving…and to contribute to these discussions so that we can all learn together.
