CaseMaker: Innovative ICT-platform to enhance case-based teaching and learning
Start date: 01 Jan 2013,

CaseMaker is a transversal project aiming to promote new learning and teaching practices in higher education and secondary vocational education using an open source web-based ICT-platform specifically designed to enhance case-based teaching and learning. The ICT-platform will build on the technology and experiences of Shareville, and Moodle platforms developed and used by the partners. The overall rationale for initiating the CaseMaker project is to further integrate academia and practice in order to enhance student learning, help students develop transferable skills and improve students’ employability. The envisaged output of the project is to develop an ICT-platform that enhances case-based teaching through three integrated elements: a) CaseDeveloper (software component that allows faculty to collaboratively develop multimedia-cases) b) CaseTeacher (software component that allows teachers to plan their case-based teaching formulating not only case-based assignments, but also competence profiles and learning objectives for students) c) CaseAnalyser (software component that allows students to analyse and solve cases, and teachers to get a unique insight into the collaboration and learning process of students). The CaseMaker platform will be incrementally developed during a three year period, and it is a declared aim that the platform has to prove itself as being applicable in different cultures and in different learning ambits, thus benefiting the partners, old and new, at different levels of the educational system. Such activities facilitate that a community will also develop during the project phase, giving CaseMaker a strong standing ground from the beginning. The development of such a strengthened sustainable community will have a lasting impact on European students and will contribute to a lifelong learning. The increased use of case teaching with multimedia cases will improve the academic learning of students and their notion of and connection to industry.
