For decades, eLearning development has followed the ADDIE model of Analysis, Design, Development, Implement, and Evaluation. ADDIE has served us well. It has been and will always be a trusted and valid approach to learning development, but it has shown its shortcomings in recent years with the implementation of models derived from ADDIE or meant to streamline ADDIE.
It is our responsibility as learning leaders to research and embrace processes which will enhance the process for our organization and lead to enhanced end products for the end users.¨ Agile Development is one process every organization should look to for eLearning Development. The greatest value comes from the team approach to iterative development.
