Training Design & Development
Effective Instructional Design requires clear methodology that can be catered to best serve each client and project.
Our learning engineers employ a variety of curriculum development methodologies to suit the unique needs of each customer and project. Our approach incorporates the best qualities of ADDIE, Successive Approximation (SAM), and Rapid Prototyping (RP).
ADDIE is the most widely used methodology today and stands for Analysis, Design, Develop, Implement, and Evaluate.
Successive Approximation Model repeatedly iterates through evaluate, design, and develop until the desired outcome is achieved.
Rapid Prototyping is for collaborative and quick iteration. This model focuses on only the steps or activities that add value.
ADDIE is short for Analysis, Design, Develop, Implement, and Evaluate. Though the ADDIE model is the most widely employed instructional design methodology in use today, it is often implemented in a rigid and inefficient manner.
We utilize the solid fundamental process flow but alter our approach according to the client and project.
The Successive Approximation Model is agile and repeatedly iterates through evaluate, design, and develop until the desired outcome is achieved. This model consists of four formal phases:
- Preparation, also known as the “savvy start” where goals and objectives are discussed.
- Design, which iterates through design, prototype, and review cycles until stakeholders are in agreement.
- Development, which iterates through develop, implement, and evaluate cycles.
Rapid Prototyping is highly collaborative, quick, and iterative. This model abandons formal process and focuses instead only on the steps or activities that add value. For example, making use of phone interviews and reusing or adapting existing materials.
Rapid Prototyping is particularly well suited to projects that are small and well-defined and those that are highly innovative and exploratory. It is sometimes used during requirements and design phases of larger projects to help refine shared vision among stakeholders.
