A Conversation with Michael Allen–ADDIE, SAM & the Future of ID

Kapp Notes

He founded the computer-based course authoring tool Authorware in 1984 and later formed Macromedia through a merger which was then bought by Adobe Systems. He has just released a new book, Leaving Addie for SAM: An Agile Model for Developing the Best Learning Experiences in which he describes what he calls the Successive approximation Model (SAM). Apparently the book has stirred a little controversy around the topic of ADDIE.

He is also the one that made agile e-Learning development main stream with his book Leaving ADDIE for SAM.
