Weaknesses of the ADDIE Model
While the ADDIE Model was predominantly used in the development of multimedia content for learning for many years, the model has some significant weaknesses. It tends to be inefficient because it is not iterative. Also, the linear approach tends to work well for static content but may be restrictive when dealing with user generated content or learning outcomes that do not have a predetermined end state. Perhaps the biggest weakness of the model is that it assumes that you can know all of the requirements before you develop the content. From practical experience we realize that the design process (developing and experimenting with the content) actually shapes the final design. The following is a list of specific weaknesses to the ADDIE model from Allen Interactions.
