Product Description

From the Back Cover

The Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement, and Evaluate (ADDIE) process is used to introduce an approach to instruction design that has a proven record of success. Instructional Design: The ADDIE Approach is intended to serve as an overview of the ADDIE concept. The primary rationale for this book is to respond to the need for an instruction design primer that addresses the current proliferation of complex educational development models, particularly non-traditional approaches to learning, multimedia development and online learning environments.

Many entry level instructional designers and students enrolled in related academic programs indicate they are better prepared to accomplish the challenging work of creating effective training and education materials after they have a thorough understanding of the ADDIE principles. However, a survey of instructional development applications indicate that the overwhelming majority of instructional design models are based on ADDIE, often do not present the ADDIE origins as part of their content, and are poorly applied by people unfamiliar with the ADDIE paradigm.

The purpose of this book is to focus on fundamental ADDIE principles, written with a minimum of professional jargon. This is not an attempt to debate scholars or other educational professionals on the finer points of instructional design, however, the book's content is based on sound doctrine and supported by valid empirical research. The only bias toward the topic is that generic terms will be used as often as possible in order to make it easy for the reader to apply the concepts in the book to other specific situations.

A bit dry and difficult to follow at times. I was able to follow it and still got an "A".

Excellent 8 Mar. 2013
By Deborah Mccain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is well written, and the perspective from both business and educational environments is helpful in web site development using a CMS like Weebly. Too often people believe that the focus of a business web site should be on what "they" like, rather than considering the user. The book contains practice cases, and a quiz to test comprehension. I would have appreciated detail of UI and UX, but anyone reading this book would be able to apply those principles effectively. The Bibliography is current and extensive; an added bonus for researchers.

Great review of the ADDIE 2 Mar. 2013
By M. Rosemund - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a great book for review of ADDIE the structure around instructional design. It's good for in IDs and a good review for experienced IDs . However, if you have been doing instruction design for years you may not want to purchase this book. I'm of the belief that you can find something out of everything - even fundamental information is good to review.
