Learning Design Models Are Fine: But Are They Practical?
One of the most important things a learning experience (LX) designer can do is apply a sound, repeatable process to one’s designs. The problem I have with design processes is that they are often too vague and do not actually tell you what to do in the moment. For example, take a look at the A in ADDIE. Analyze. The books on ADDIE will generally tell you that before you begin creating a learning experience, you will want to figure out what is needed. Of course this makes sense, but what I really want to know is how to actually determine those needs.
