This section is designed to teach the fundamentals of instructional design. You will be introduced to the process of instructional systems design (ISD), and provided with opportunities to develop skills and techniques necessary in the analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation of instruction (often referred to as the ADDIE framework).

The course will be structured to give you a theoretical understanding and practical experience with ISD, setting the stage for the transference of this experience into future design situations. The course will assist you in implementing quality instructional design in traditional and non-traditional educational settings.



  • What is Learning?

  • What is ID?

  • Instructional Design Systemic Process

  • History of Instructional Design


Learning Objectives:

  • Learners will become familiar with the History of Instructional Design

  • Learners will be able to determine the connection between the five steps used in the ADDIE process

  • Learners will be able to differentiate between situational aspects of learning and design


ADDIE Model:

ADDIE is a leading learning development model used for instructional design, which is the complete process of designing, developing, and serving learning content. The model is often used to design training and learning & development programs in organizations.

ADDIE stands for:

Analyze Design Develop Implement Evaluate


In the Analyze phase of the ADDIE process, the first task is to identify the problem you’re trying to solve. For example, maybe it’s poor sales, a non-inclusive culture, or a lack of skills to move to a more digitized organization. From here, you can identify the core business problem and decide whether it can be solved through effective training, or if other organizational development interventions will be more effective. Instructional designers also need to determine and manage stakeholders’ needs.


In the Design phase of the ADDIE model, you translate all the information collated in the Analyze phase into a learning design. An outline is created that structures the learning intervention and specifies learning objectives for each workshop or lesson. This will include a strategy, delivery methods (e.g., online, offline, blended), lessons, duration, assessment, and feedback.


In the Develop phase, you will use your storyboards and/or prototypes as a guide to creating your courses. You’ve already decided on the core learning objectives. Now it’s time to start bringing the training to life.


The implementation stage focuses on the delivery of training and project management. This includes communicating with learners, logistics, data collection, and training trainers for global roll-outs of the learning program.


Evaluation is an integral part of every stage of the ADDIE learning model, but it also gets its own phase. As soon as you deliver your first course or workshop, you want immediate (and continuous) feedback so that you can implement improvements.
