The use of case studies in teaching software engineering has been steadily growing in recent years. Rich opportunities exist in both academia and industry to capture project data and turn it into learning opportunities. Unfortunately, no easy-to-use tool exists to help authors with the task of transforming un-edited material into an assembled, pre-packaged case. A recent project at Carnegie Mellon University aims to overcome much of this challenge by developing an authoring platform for case studies. Its goal is to provide academics and industry professionals alike with a framework and tool set to create various types of multimedia case studies with enhanced user interaction and decision making capabilities. These cases may then appeal to a large diverse audience and in turn, by leveraging the Internet as a distribution mechanism, help increase the reach of educational content globally.
