CASUS is a semi-linear learning system, which means that all students work through the cases in the same order.
However, since 2017 we also support a more exploratory (or semi-linear) case design. Learners can make their own decisions about which cards to access next.
The CASUS authoring tool supports the integraion of numerous media formats, such as images, pdf files, or videos. Thus, you can display almost any kind of digital contet directly in the case or as an hyperlink.
A curcial component in CASUS cases are the different question types. For example, you can include Multiple Choice, freetext or list-based questions. Thus, you can select the most effective question type for the learning objectives you want your student to learn.
Feedback to the students is implemented in different ways:
After answering questions students receive quantitative and qualitative feedback either from the case author or based on peer responsed.
Additionally, expert comments can provide additional information for the students.
In the CASUS dashboard and optional discussion boards students can communicate with the author, educators, or their peers.
As part of an EC funded project a concept mapping tool to support the clinical reasoning learning process in the virtual patients has been integrated into CASUS.
