- WWW enhanced case studies
- Pilgrim, Chris J.
- The use of case studies is a common approach to the teaching and assessment of many subjects. Case studies provide the necessary connections between theory and practice and allow difficult concepts to be introduced in a context of use. Unfortunately, a realistic case study requires a large time commitment from lecturing staff since they usually involve personal interviews where the lecturing staff act as clients or users. This paper will report on the use of the World Wide Web to manage more efficiently a case study assignment in a Systems Analysis & Software Engineering subject at Swinburne University of Technology.
