In Part One of this two-part blog series, we looked at the traditional ADDIE model of Instructional Design and compared it to the quicker, more modern AGILE model. AGILE and Rapid eLearning design models take a quicker Instructional Design approach by eliminating extra or unnecessary steps from the ADDIE model. Of course, when implementing these quicker approaches, you have to be careful not to eliminate necessary steps that might cut down on the quality of your eLearning materials.
A rapid resolution plan based upon the ADDIE Model of Instructional Design can help turn the ADDIE model into a rapid approach. However, it’s important to remember that the Rapid eLearning model encompasses the same processes as traditional learning models like ADDIE. The key difference here is that the Rapid eLearning processes are a scaled down version of each ADDIE step.
For the best of both worlds, here’s an example of how to implement Rapid eLearning based upon the ADDIE model.
