ADDIE was first created in 1975 and it is ever since the most commonly used design tool which helps in creating effective training programs. The ADDIE instructional design model is most commonly used as it is simple and easy to understand. It is applicable in any type of an organization and provides a means for sound decision making in order to determine the who, what, when, where, why, and how of a learning program.
The ADDIE instructional design model consists of 5 phases.
The Picturing the ADDIE Instructional Design Model Infographic presents what each phase involves. These 5 phases can be modified or changed according to the type and requirements of the organization using this model.
