Abstract

Case-based approach, as an instructional method, has been widely used in training professionals such as doctors, lawyers, and teachers. Its effect on classroom education has been well studied with empirical evidences from various fields. However, the construct of case-based instruction was often vaguely defined, and less emphasis was given to its application in a purely online environment. As a result, using an online tutorial developed by the author, the study first introduces three important features of case-based online instruction: criteria for case construction, multimedia as delivery format and interactions as instructional scaffolds. The study then proposes an instrument to investigate the tutorial’s fidelity to case-based approach, as well as its effectiveness from learners’ perspective. Based on the preliminary result from the pilot test, future research questions and hypotheses regarding the online tutorial are also formed and discussed.
