Abstract

This Research full paper addresses the challenge of creating an effective course design that has tight alignment between various course components and incorporates appropriate pedagogy and assessment techniques. Many systems have been proposed solely for the purpose of guiding instructors through the process of course design so as to achieve maximum student learning. One such system is the Instructional Module Development System (IMODS). IMODS is a web-based software system that has been developed to assist instructors in curriculum design based on the principles of Outcome-based Education (OBE) and Bloom's Taxonomy. It is not just enough to come up with a model that theoretically facilitates effective result-oriented course design. There should be facts, experiments and proof that any model succeeds in achieving what it aims to achieve. This paper focuses on testing and evaluation of the IMODS platform and deliver feedback to its development team. We present our methodology and instruments used for testing and evaluation of the tool. Data collection and analysis is described and the results of evaluation of IMODS are presented.
