ADDIE for Digital Learning

ADDIE is the standard, yes, but I am not a fan of the model.  I prefer Hibbits and Travin ( a new find) but I designed in SAM/AGILE for years – it seems to support the IT world better, and was the standard project flow for the entire business.

Yes, ADDIE can support digital learning, but I agree with Tony Bates when he says,

“Another criticism is that while the five stages are reasonably well described in most descriptions of the model, it does not provide guidance on how to make decisions within that framework. For instance, it does not provide guidelines or procedures for deciding how to choose between different technologies, or what assessment strategies to use. Instructors have to go beyond the ADDIE framework to make these decisions.”

However, his Infographic below is the best I have seen for ADDIE in Digital learning.
