Infographic: The ADDIE Model

I have created a graphical representation of the ADDIE model. ADDIE (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation & Evaluation) is the methodology used by the majority of instructional designers for training development. There may be some debate as to whether certain tasks belong in the design or development phase. Also, certain tasks may have been omitted due to space constraints. I tried to focus on the most important aspects of each phase.

    I’ve heard of Addie before – it seems to be very widely used in trainerdom. Have you ever come across EDIP (Explanation, Demonstration, Imitation, Practice). I came across it a long time ago in the army, and it seemed very practical and straightforward. We think about it when developing programs for clients, and I find it useful.

    Another great infographic for training purposes. I like the way this style allows you to condense the material down to only what you need. The graphics and positioning of the mattieral makes the learning experience that much better.

    I found this article really interesting, because i’ve already applied ADDIE model when i developed TOT (Training Of Teacher). But, i have some different sub-step in every domain you explained, so this will be a good idea for my concept of ADDIE.

    Thanks a lot.

    Hi Nicole,
    I followed you from Linkedin, to Jasmine’s blog, to here. This is awesome!!! These formats would make excellent training guides – so attractive and easily to follow. I’m going to keep this in mind when the next opportunity arises. So you’ve inspired me too!

    I would like permission to use your infograph for ADDIE and for Kilpatrick’s Evaluation. This is for a Basic Instructional Design and Facilitation Class I co-teach. I will give full credit and your Web Site. Thank you.

    Hi Nicole, I have used ADDIE for years and I think your infographic nails it. May I use it for a conference session I’m giving for child support workers? I will give you full credit and reference your web site. Thank you!!

    Hello, I love your ADDIE infographic. May I use it as (or in) handout for a departmental open house? It does a great job of explaining what our instructional design group does. Thanks.

    Hi Nicole, Your ADDIE image is great. May I use the infographic during an educational presentation by creating a poster of the image, if it is available through a third-party distributor? We will give full credit and reference your site. Thank you!
