Using multimedia case study material for teaching requirements engineering
This paper describes the development and use of multimedia case study materials on the World Wide Web. Materials were used in two final year courses on requirements engineering. The main motivation for providing materials in this form was to provide a convincing basis for practical elicitation and specification activities carried out during the course. It was also hoped that providing information in this way would increase student motivation and permit flexibility in self-study, as well as providing staff with an opportunity to gauge student reaction to using materials in this form. Students have, on the whole, reacted positively to this experiment and have apparently found the materials provided particularly useful in providing orientation at the beginning of the course.
