One approach to learning information systems design is case-based reasoning (CBR). However, learning from design cases can be superficial, if cases are not accessible at the level of meaningful design components and are not contextualised in the situation in which they have been conceived. StoryNet is a learning environment inspired by CBR and by a methodology for information systems analysis and design grounded in scenario-based modelling. StoryNet features `cases' produced by community of learners and linked in a network to highlight how design solutions evolve across time and different groups of learners. This fosters in the learners the ability to perform a deeper analysis of the business organisation and stimulates innovative solutions. Also, the network of cases affords the opportunity to capitalise on the learners' differences. It provides a richer context, in which design quality can be better understood and advanced, through the interplay of the different roles, motivations and expectations of the actors involved and a collective process of selection of the best-fit design features
