The Process

everestcs - effective design


Designing your training program is a key step to making it a successful project. The specialists at everestcs are experts in a variety of instructional design models, and can help you decide which is best for your project. The most frequently used models are:
  • Rapid Instructional Design
  • Dick & Carey Instructional Design
Each instructional design model has practical uses for specific training needs. ADDIE (which stands for Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement and Evaluate) is an in-depth design model which explores the needs of the business and the learners, creates measureable objectives to design the course outline, develops learning materials and then evaluates the effects of implementing the program. This model is used to create training programs from the ground up.

Rapid Instructional Design (RID), like the name implies, allows the expert to quickly assess an existing training program and adapt it to fit unique business needs. This model can be used to modify your existing training programs or off-the-shelf systems, and can be a cost-effective approach to meeting your organization's needs.

The Dick & Carey Instructional Design model, named for its developers, emphasizes the creation of learning objectives before designing and developing the learning materials. It also places importance on formative evaluations - the evaluation of learning materials and objectives as they are being developed. This model uses pilot testing and revisions prior to final roll-out to reduce costs of production.

Each of the design models used by everestcs incorporates gathering information about learner performance before and after training delivery to measure the effectiveness of the program. This data is useful for perpetuating continuous improvement.
