I am developing a course for a client and found myself putting it aside for a couple of weeks while I worked on a different client’s project. Before I put it aside, I was getting a bit frustrated with how things were progressing and found myself in the proverbial weeds. I returned to it yesterday and it is amazing how much of a difference that time/space has meant to my perspective on the course. I’m sure this is a common thing, but I hadn’t considered it as a deliberate step in the instructional design process before.
- Analysis – know your audience and create a persona to focus your design, create instructional strategy
- Design & Development – create a working rough draft of a course
- Pause/Reflect – put the course aside for a period of time and work on something else
What do you think? Does ADDRIE have a nice ring to it?
