Course redesign follows a four-stage process organized around key sets of considerations related to design, interaction, media, and evaluation. In this chapter, we introduce the DIME model of course redesign, a systematic approach to creating and implementing online experiences. We argue that new mental models are needed to move away from simply digitizing the in-class experience for online delivery. Online teaching and learning is unique and requires new approaches. The model puts technology in a supporting role, privileging pedagogy, and human interaction. The principal role of the instructor is explored.
