For years, companies have been using the Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation (ADDIE) model to develop e-learning courses. However, this model has some significant limitations. They are:
- The model is linear in nature, which makes it inflexible
- ADDIE is based on the premise that the requirements of the client-learner are completely known before developing the course, which is not always true.
- All stages of the ADDIE model are related to one another. Any change made at one stage of the online course development can affect other phases, leading to re-work.
- Most importantly, it is a time-consuming.
These limitations of the ADDIE model are addressed very effectively by the agile process of e-learning development. Let us now see the 3 stages of this process.
