Agile learning design isn’t really a new phenomenon. Athletes, savvy entrepreneurs and hard-nosed businesspeople have known for decades that being agile in the face of tough competition is the key to success. When it comes to the Agile eLearning development, however, those five letters – A.G.I.L.E. What is Agile Learning?

Agile eLearning development: business goals and road map

Challenge to Learn

This is a first post in a series of post on Agile eLearning development. This series is sparked by the book ‘Leaving ADDIE for SAM’ by Michael Allen and Richard Sites. I do believe that agile software development can offer us even more very practical ‘best practices’ that we can apply to eLearning. Michael told me that he is working on a new book on agile project management, that will also address this. Software role. eLearning role. A ‘double role’.

Learning Agility: Re-Invention with Performer Support

Living in Learning

After sitting on a similar panel the previous year, I noticed immediately that the role played by just-in-time learning had increased in these three leading companies. In other words, learning must be designed for consumption in (or near) the workflow – learning needs to be agile. If organizations expect their workers to become more agile, they must enhance their ability to think and draw conclusions quickly. What is Performer Support?

The Big Question for November - Future of ISD / ADDIE / HPT?

Tony Karrer

The question this month is: Are ISD / ADDIE / HPT relevant in a world of rapid elearning, faster time-to-performance, and informal learning? we change roles from direct content creation and control of delivery to a set-up, aggregator, guidance role. So, back to the question - are ISD / ADDIE / HPT relevant? And the "but" is that they will be marginalized unless you do the following: Figure out Rapid HPT, ISD, ADDIE Even in the case of eLearning 1.0

5 eLearning Trends Leading to the End of the Learning Management System


With so much information easily accessible from multiple sources in the cloud, learners will take more and more control of their own learning, changing the role of learning professionals, departments and software. For the learner it provides support in taking control of his personal development. I also believe that we have to leave ADDIE (or ADDIE like methods) and move into agile eLearning development.

I do believe that curation is one of the roles an eLearning developer should perform in order to stay relevant.

Addressing the Gap Between Instructional Design and Project Management


The many different development methodologies – like ADDIE, waterfall, agile, et cetera – mean there is a high likelihood that departments that don’t specifically work together but are dependent on each other could be on a different cycle. What is the ADDIE Model? In order to understand the difference between ADDIE and the project management cycle, we need to understand them each individually. True ADDIE development, though, is not so strict.

Ultimate eLearning terms you should know: Part 1 (A-L)


ADDIE: An acronym made up of the words: Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation. The ADDIE process for developing learning solutions has gone through a number of iterations since it was first used in the 1950s. When implementing ADDIE, the outcomes from each phase are fed into the phase that follows. In today’s fast-paced learning environments, the AGILE method is often seen as more efficient than ADDIE.

This Learning ‘Project’ Is Not that Serious

CLO Magazine

From an instructional perspective, popular, if oversimplified, design models, such as ADDIE, tend to reinforce this default to treat all work as project work. When learning leaders pair the project model with a linear instructional model, namely, ADDIE, the business consequences extend to ineffectual learning solutions. To change best practices, redefine roles or create a sustainable solution requires a sustained effort that goes beyond the limited parameters of a project.

Embedding Learning in Work: The Benefits and Challenges

Charles Jennings

The Challenges One of the major challenges is the fact that until recently L&D professionals have seen their primary role as instructional designers and creators of learning content and experiences where this content and these learning experiences are separate from work. ADDIE (or some other instructional design approach) ruled. A second significant challenge (and blind spot for many L&D departments) has been the provision performance support.
