How can the ADDIE-model support you to create successful e-learning courses?

Perhaps as an e-learning designer you have already heard from the ADDIE-model, which is the most commonly used instructional design model. ADDIE stands for analysis, design, development, implementation and evaluation. You should pay your attention to these 5 phases in any case, when you create an e-learning course or a video-based e-learning.

  1. Analysis
    At the beginning of the creation of any e-learning course, you should create an extensive analysis. This analysis should provide information about what expectations are attached to the e-learning, how these can be measured, but also what knowledge your students have etc.
  2. Design
    The D in ADDIE doesn’t mean the visual design, but the instructional design. It refers to the systematic planning, development and evaluation of learning environments and learning materials. Thus, you should – as a second step – create a storyboard to capture exactly what you want to convey to your learners and how.
  3. Development
    The next step is the development of your e-learning course. This can take place e.g. within an authoring tools such as Articulate Storyline. Here it is important to create the content according to your storyboard first and afterwards test everything. Only in this way you can guarantee a high quality.
  4. Implementation
    After a successful performed test, your e-learning course can be implemented and made available to your learners. This is done in many companies typically via a learning management system (LMS). You can make your course available in SCORM and thus provide it for each LMS. The implementation in an LMS has the advantage, that the learning process of your learners can be accurately tracked.
  5. Evaluation
    Finally, it is important to evaluate your e-learning course yet to find out whether all the expectations have been met or whether improvements need to be performed.


2 questions that every e-learning designer should answer in his learning course

To bring an e-learning course to success, an e-learning designer has to face the challenge of influencing the motivation of his learners positively. To do this it is important to put yourself into the position of your learners and to answer 2 questions in this position:

  1. Why do I do this course?
    For learners it is important to know why they take a course and what added value this provides to them. Thus, the contents of a course should always be associated with specific objectives, which are also taught to the learners. This can e.g. be done at the beginning of a training through a graphic, which defines objectives. It is much more important, however, that the learners know what added value they will get from the course. If they know for what exactly they need the course in practice and what knowledge is imparted to them, it increases motivation and leads to a better result than if the learner doesn’t know which cases of this course is at all relevant in the practice.

  2. What should I do with all this new information?
    In addition to the „why“ it is also important for learners to know what to do with all this new information at the end. Here it can be advantageous that the specific information is built around the expectations of the learners, so that they know to which actual expectations in practice the information is linked.

Thus, it is important for students to know, „why“ they attend a course and „what“ exactly they can do with the information transmitted to them in practice. If these two questions are answered, this increases the motivation of learners and can optionally act against the simple „clicking through“ a course, because the learners know, why they do this course and what added value they carry in the end.


What content should an e-learning style guide include?

How Articulate is reporting in one of his blog posts, a style guide is used to define rules to customize the appearance of all e-learning courses within a company to be uniform. A style guide is especially important if more than one person will create e-learning courses. So it can be assured that the corporate identity (CI) of the company will be safeguarded and each course is tailored to this CI.

In this blog post from Articulate also the necessary content of a style guide has been reported. Here are some points, which Articulate (Nicola Appel) defines to be essential:

  1. logos
  2. fonts
  3. colors
  4. guidelines for pictures
  5. guidelines for the language
  6. buttons
  7. templates

We would like to add to this content also another point, which is particularly important for our video-based e-learning courses. This is about guidelines for video and audio material. In these guidelines graphical templates for video material and linguistic guidelines for audio material should be included. Also the camera movement should be defined uniformly in every video-based e-learning course.

Depending on which points beyond are also important in your company, they can be added at any time to your style guide. A style guide should act as a support and should make the work on e-learning content more efficiently.
