    Experience with case teaching, both at the Copenhagen Business School and also on a more large scale world basis, shows that students often do not carry out the kind of high level analysis of a case, which the case teaching paradigm claim it can encourage. Also, as the worlds of digital, multimedia and web-based educational environments emerge, case teachers want to use more than just paper-based cases, but have found that developing multimedia web cases is not a trivial matter. CaseMaker is an e-Learning environment, which supports: 1) Teachers in the development of cases. 2) Students in individual and collaborative analysis of cases. The system is currently under development and this paper reports on our first analysis and design phases, discussing the many possibilities and problems of case-based e-Learning.
