Don’t Skip the “A” in ADDIE


In my work in the instructional design space, I utilize the ADDIE learning method. ADDIE is an acronym that stands for Analysis-Design-Development-Implementation-Evaluation. The initial step in the ADDIE process is the analysis.


eLearning Guild Presentation: Applying ADDIE to 3D Worlds

Kapp Notes

My subject was "Applying the ADDIE Model to 3D Virtual Learning Worlds" We discussed ways in which the traditional method of instructional design needs to be modified to accommodate elements of 3D virtual worlds (we call them Virtual Immersive Environments). The schedule for the first day of the online conference.

The Learning Continuum – Using the PDR Design Model

Living in Learning

Many of us cut our professional learning design teeth using the long-held tradition of the ADDIE instructional design (ISD) model. With that open-minded mentality, I confess to listening to the debate and wondering if the ADDIE model really is falling short, or if our application of it is worthy of re-examination. Insightful words to be sure, certainly not an overt indictment of ADDIE. Presence of the “96%&# does not mean ADDIE is obsolete.

Many frameworks exists for instructional design, including Merrill’s Principles of Instruction, Gagne’s Nine Events of Instructions and Bloom’s Taxonomy, but the most popular ID model is ADDIE. ADDIE stands for analysis, design, development, implementation and evaluation, which is the suggested process for this model.

So, I wanted to pull together some reading and resources around Agile eLearning , Agile ADDIE , etc. The first couple of responses to this month's LCBQ Addressing I Want it Now #LCBQ have come in and Kasper Spiro's caught my eye: On demand: agile e-Learning development #LCBQ. Like Kasper, I'm very familiar with Agile in software development. I was not as familiar with it in terms of eLearning development.

A Conversation about New “Agile Courseware” Book

Kapp Notes

I was intrigued by the idea since I explored a similar concept in my Gamification book in a section called “ADDIE vs. SCRUM” so I wanted to talk to Raytheon and explore there take on the subject a little more. We also address what we have learned about how Lean-Agile impacts traditional ADDIE (Analysis, Design, Development and Evaluation). After a two week iteration, the team conducted a synchronous review with the customer stakeholders of nine LOs as working courseware.

How would you go about converting a face to face course to an eLearning format?


Synchronous Learning : A real-time, instructor-led online learning event in which all participants are logged on at the same time and communicate directly with each other. Learners and teachers experience synchronous eLearning as more social and avoid frustration by asking and answering questions in real time. 2) Research the Instructional Design Models I am sure that you are familiar with ADDIE. However, ADDIE is not a universal solution! Joan T.

Acquiring a digital culture thanks to learning

Learning Wire

A training department whose projects continue to be managed in the traditional way (based on the V-model or even the ADDIE model) without taking into account the benefits of an “agile” approach can hardly claim to have embraced digital culture. Digital culture in training matures in at least three stages (as does that of the company itself, with the two moving forward in parallel, although they are not always synchronized).

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.

And repeated it six months later. And what I saw, was poor. Theory was everywhere. Gagne?
