“ASIE, is an instructional design model possesses strong fundamentals and under-pining principles of teaching and learning, such as flexibility, adaptability and effectiveness capabilities in almost every instructional environment, be it in the 21st.Century or beyond. Being inclusively designed at the conceptual model, it has been integrated with the operational cyclical management functions, tool (MIW), process and technique of Planning, Organizing or Implementing and Evaluation. This systematic, systemic, teacher and student friendly integrated with high technological-based instructional innovation, justifies being one of the main vehicles or enablers to realize the overall educational transformation vision and mission of Malaysia Education Blueprint 2013-2025. The Model fulfills the needs of 21st Century Education across nations.”

“The ASIE Model  is basically an overall instructional planning model using principles of lD. It is an adaptation of the various lD models particularly, Dick & Carey model (2010), Dick & Reiser Model (1998) and have its root from the generic ADDIE model except that the authors are able to integrate design and development component into strategize consisting of integrating, accommodating, applying and instilling and is integrated into MIW – a worksheet that prepares teachers in their instructional planning.  Another interesting feature is that this model accommodates the 21 century learning skills. I believe this model can be used by school teachers, curriculum planners and instructional designers to create, utilize and manage information, technology and media resources to facilitate 21st century teaching and learning environment.”
