What Participants Say

This ADDIE Toolkit has been a lifesaver! After having worked as a Lead Instructional Designer for many years, I decided to go out on my own. I didn’t have my own templates, so this toolkit gave me all that I needed. In just a few weeks I had created a really impressive portfolio that landed me my dream job.


I recommend the ADDIE Toolkit to any Instructional Designer that is looking for elegant and easy to use templates. I have received many complements from my clients since purchasing the Toolkit.


I was fresh out of completing a Master of Adult and Vocational Education when I got a job as a company’s first in-house Instructional Designer. Having little to no templates to work from, the ADDIE Toolkit was a godsend. The templates and guides within the Toolkit are comprehensive, yet concise. They guide you through the learning design process step by step – perfect for someone with limited experience in the L&D industry. I highly recommend this Toolkit for anyone starting out in Instructional Design.



The course has been designed to guide you through an instructional design project, using the ADDIE model.

The course is divided into steps that reflect each of the ADDIE phases. Each section provides you with a description of the phase, an overview of the Toolkit’s templates and guides (including worked examples) to be utilised during the phase, and additional resources for further information.

More about the course:

  • You will have up to 12 months to complete the online course and your project
  • The course covers effective learning design including:
    • Learning Theories
    • Instructional Design Principles
    • Adult Learning Principles

  • Use the Toolkit as a self-paced resource to complete your own project as you design and develop your own learning program
  • The Toolkit is divided into sections that reflect the ADDIE model phases, which participants bring to life by applying their understanding of each phase to their program


The ADDIE Toolkit

The ADDIE Toolkit includes a comprehensive collection of templates and guides. It has been designed to suit both those who are new to Instructional Design, as well as those seeking to refine or specialise their skills.

To enable the practical application of the ADDIE model, the Toolkit is divided into sections that reflect each of the ADDIE phases.

These resources may be used as an end-to-end approach to designing and developing an effective learning program, or you may choose to dive into using discrete tools and templates.

Do You Need An Instructional Design Degree?

Unlike some industries, you don’t necessarily need a qualification or licence to become an Instructional Designer.

However, in order to develop effective learning programs, you should have a strong understanding of the key elements and theory that underpin the instructional design process – including how to conduct a learning needs analysis (LNA), adult learning principles and assessment strategies.
