5.0 out of 5 stars The Best introduction to ISD 20 April 2009
Format:Paperback
Many writers have been debating whether Instructional Systems Design (ISD) is dead or is still a viable method of designing and implementing training programs. The reality, however, is that even if ISD is no longer as wide-spread as a decade or two ago, it remains the basis for most of the other 'models' of training design and implementation and is the foundation upon which e-learning was built.

As a primer on ISD, this is the best book you're ever likely to come across. Written in a clear manner with tons of useful and practical ideas and guidelines, it is essential reading for both the novice and experiences trainer. As the other reviewers have said, if this is not on every trainer's desk in your organization, then it should be.

The book is Divided to Four Sections:

1: The Basics of ISD - a short introduction to the model and the concepts of ISD.
2: Working through the ADDIE Model - Takes through the steps of the ISD process in more detail and with lots of exercises.
3: The Basics of Design and Lesson Plans
4: Tips for Success - This is probably the most useful part of the book with numerous ideas and suggestions to avoid common pitfalls and to enhance the process. It also has a special section on e-learning that I found quite useful as an introduction to the topic.

Overall, this is an excellent book and highly recommended along with Lou Russel's "Project Management for Trainers" which complements this book but focuses on the operational aspects of managing and implementing the Training project.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great ID book for those new to the field 29 Aug 2005
By Justin Beller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found this book to be straight forward in its explanation of the ADDIE model of instructional design. It breaks it down by first introducing an overview of the model (the concept) followed by close examination of each component.

Each chapter is concluded with an exercise that demonstrates what was taught and then an opportunity to apply what you learned to exercises on your own.

I recommend this as a great "starter book" for anyone interested in the instructional design field.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Practical Primer 22 Oct 2008
By Gregory R. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a terrific book. We use it in our Master's degree program in Instructional Systems Deveopment at the Univeristy of Maryland, Baltimore County. The author writes in a practical, easy to understand writing style (isn't that the point of communication?). It give our graduate students a great resource for creating hands-on projects in instructional design, elearning and training. I have been in the field over 20 years and still use it on weekly basis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical and Useful. 12 Dec 2001
By Todd L. Brace - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book cuts right to the chase. Each trainer on our staff has a copy, and in the last year we've applied the basic tenets relative to instructional design, writing objectives, writing course design plans, evaluations, etc.
As we work through our curriculum overhauling the programs one at a time, this book has provided a guide for individuals who have strong subject matter background but not solid training background.
That said, seasoned designers and trainers will find a great deal of useful information and techniques.
A great investment, which is paying dividends in our company.

5.0 out of 5 stars a reference for future ISD project 19 May 2011
By WaterSheep - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I bought a previous version for an Intro to ISD class. Have come back to this book repeatedly as a reference and way to help get through various phases of ADDIE. One of the few textbooks that will get used repeatedly over the years.
