The ADDIE Instructional Design Model
A Structured Training Methodology
The ADDIE instructional design model provides a step-by-step process that helps training specialists plan and create training programs. The ADDIE design model revolves around the following five components:
These five stages of the ADDIE model encompass the entire training development process, from the time someone first asks, "What do people need to learn?" all the way to the point where someone actually measures, "Did people learn what they needed?"
The ADDIE Process
The ADDIE instructional design model forms a roadmap for the entire training project.
Sometimes, Intulogy works directly with a client's training specialists, who have studied the ADDIE model in graduate school. However, we're often contacted by directors and executives who know their company has a training need, but they don't know much about the instructional design process.
Intulogy's training specialists share a flowchart of the ADDIE instructional design model with our clients. It helps our clients locate where they are in the training project lifecycle, and it provides a common language for us to discuss the project. Each page in the ADDIE section library offers a link to this flowchart in the left-hand navigation bar.
