This course will first introduce you to the ADDIE model used in instructional design. ADDIE is the process that most instructional designers and training developers typically use and stands for analyze, design, develop, implement, and evaluate. You will study its objective and look at a real-life example where you will see that it is a simple and effective instructional design methodology that you can easily apply yourself. You will also see that this model could be contextualised to be used in many different learning methods.
You will then study the different ISD models and look into the key benefits of using them when designing courses. These include focusing efforts, getting quick results, and ensuring the effectiveness of the training. You will also learn that using the ISD model helps professionals lower development costs. You will study the different learning theories, the benefits of working with subject matter experts, Gagne's Nine Events of Instruction, the role of memory, and more.
