The ADDIE Model

The ADDIE model is a five phase flexible guideline for creating effective training and support tools. Analyze. Design. Develop. Implement. Evaluate. It sounds simple, as most profound ideas usually are (i.e. E=mc², sliced bread, etc.) and many Instructional Designers do these steps intuitively. When the ADDIE model was articulated as a framework for constant course development it gave a common language to Instructional Designers and educators. Those pesky surveys had a name (“Evaluation” Phase), and IDs could tell their managers, “We’re in Development at the moment, hoping to Implement next week.”

IDs are drawn to the ADDIE framework because of its cyclical nature. Materials need to be updated, as times change new hurdles need to be re-evaluated and addressed. ADDIE allows our lessons to be living documents, evolving with the needs, culture and attitudes of our learners. Rapid authoring, avenues for real time feedback and lesson data allow EdApp to speed up the ADDIE cycle and ultimately to create smarter, more relevant training materials faster.
