Abstract A variety of instructional design models provide pathways for developing courses using different philosophical approaches. However, many design models tend to focus more on the teaching than on the learning portion of the process. Roderick Sims, in his book "Design Alchemy: Transforming the Way We Think About Learning and Teaching," provides an innovative approach to design online instruction that focuses primarily on the learning rather than the teacher or content. He uses the term "design alchemy " to explain how a designer can think about learning and teaching as a practical and effective means to creative online environments that maximize the educational experience. This approach allows for a more flexible and sustainable environment focused on the learner s growth and development.
