OUR PHILOSOPHY

ABOUT CASENET.CA

OUR CASES

Casenet.ca hosts management focused interviews and video teaching cases.

Currently our video interviews focus on two topics. One topic is the business culture of English Canada. A second topic is the business culture of Japan from the perspective of Canadian expatriates living in that country.

Our video cases are designed to teach students how to analyze specific real world business or management problems.   These video cases are decision based and created within the context of an individual working for a specific company in a particular industry. 

The cases are simple in terms of their make-up. Business owners, managers or corporate executives offer insight about a recently encountered issue, its importance or cause, along with information about the interviewee, company and industry. Instructors have access suggested solutions.  The task of the students is to put themselves in the position of the interviewee and create a response that addresses or resolves the issue.

WHY CASENET?

• Filmed insight from the business owner, executive or manager is the case content not the typed words of professional case writers or pages of text.

• We do not create video interviews to fit pre-written teaching cases.

• Our cases are not self-contained. Students need to search externally using  online information sources, social media, discussion boards or other sources to develop solutions.

•  Using video playlists to host and organize transcribed clips  enables case use flexibility and the capture of insight about the individual, his or her company and the industry under consideration. 

• The use of video  offers an added personal dimension. Seeing and hearing an individual speak can sometimes inspire case users to sympathize with the interviewee and his or her emotions.

Teachers, college instructors and university professors can access Casenet.ca case solutions for classroom use by signing up for access.

“The cases are real and authentic. Students can see themselves starting these types of companies."

“The value of multimedia cases is that they present issues common to many different industries but do so from different perspectives. As a business operator, these cases are ideal as they can help educate our team about alternatives and possible solutions for our current challenges.”
