Using ADDIE To Design a Web-Based Training Interface.
Lohr, Linda
Modeling the functions of a teacher in a computer interface is not a new practice; most computer applications employ electronic performance support systems (EPSS) such as online help, wizards, coaches, and even some forms of artificial intelligence. This paper presents easy-to-implement strategies for increasing learner autonomy by embedding teacher functions within the World Wide Web-based graphical user interface (GUI). The embedded teacher (ET) model proposed in this paper is similar to the butler model, which describes a good interface as performing many of the roles of a good butler (e.g., helping a person enter, exit, and move from room to room). The ET model combines the butler model with core and complementary information zones by recommending that four overall teacher functions be embedded into a GUI: (1) orienting the learner; (2) providing navigational assistance; (3) providing instructional strategies; and (4) providing interactive feedback. Altogether these four elements work to perform the essential tasks of a live teacher. Anticipated questions for each of the four teacher functions are listed. A description is then provided of how each stage of the ADDIE model (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, Evaluation) was used to address the ET when creating a GUI for a university computer course.
