An information technology (IT) tool that can guide STEM educators through the complex task of course design development, ensure tight alignment between various components of an instructional module, and provide relevant information about research-based pedagogical and assessment strategies will be of great value. A team of researchers is engaged in a User-Centered Design (UCD) approach to develop the Instructional Module Development System (IMODS), i.e., a software program that facilitates course design. In this paper the authors present the high-level design of the IMODS and demonstrate its use in the development of the curriculum for an introductory software engineering course.
