ADDIE is the Scavenger of Instructional Design, Not the Bitch Goddess (or Blooming Beyond Bloom)

MARCH 23, 2012
When ADDIE was first handed over to the U.S. For some reason instructional designers love building ADDIE into a goddess that orders them to build crappy learning platforms. For example, they pronounce that it only builds courses when the real fact is that it tells you to use a course only if a simpler method, such as a performance support tool or OJT, will not work. From its inception, ADDIE was designed to be a lean, mean, instructional design machine. SOLO Taxonomy.
