Abstract

Case studies have long been used in print form to provide practice in dealing with situations in various fields. Case studies give learners an opportunity to gain experience with analysis, decision-making, and problem-solving without feeling that their job or reputation or life is on the line. Case studies are traditionally used in a face-to-face environment that requires all the participants to interact. If students are not able to meet in this face-to-face approach or if there time there is limited, how could they still benefit from the case study? This paper describes the effects of using a Web-based case study (e-case) to provide the same benefit to learners at-a-distance.
