Instructional design has numerous approaches and theories available for use by designers and instructors. One model was particularly effective in providing developers with a generic, systematic framework that was easy to use and applicable to a variety of settings. The ADDIE model was utilized in two ways in a Master's level instructional design course, first as a framework for the development of the course and later as a process for the creation of multimedia projects. The ADDIE model presented users with an approach to instructional design that incorporated an iterative process complete with essential steps for the development of an effective course or program. Employing the ADDIE model in the development of a program or course can assist developers in instituting a learner-centered approach rather than a teacher-centered approach, making the program more applicable and meaningful for learners.
