Abstract; Learning cannot occur in isolation but requires active participation among people, their cultures and tools (Salomon & Perkins, 1998). When teaching/learning in the area of diversity, many school administrators feel challenged and/or want a checklist to follow. This phenomenon can be changed through case studies that provide real world experiences for analysis and application. On-line case studies provide an opportunity for technology skills enhancement as well as a means for prospective administrators to reach out to graduate level curriculum candidates and to administrators, teachers and students in other parts of the state and country.
