ADDIE was first created in 1975. It is the most commonly used design tool which helps in creating effective training programs. The ADDIE model is most commonly used as it is simple and easy to understand. It is applicable in any type of an organization.
The ADDIE model consists of 5 phases. Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement and Evaluate. These 5 phases can be modified or changed according to the type and requirements of the organization using this model. It provides a means for sound decision making in order to determine the who, what, when, where, why, and how of a learning program.
There are many Instructional Systems Design models out there, most of which are based on popular models such as ADDIE etc. What is the instructional design process that you follow when designing and developing eLearning courseware? Do share your thoughts on this.
