Abstract

This paper reports an action research case study in which a traditional lecture-based university level course on Network Management at the University of Lapland was developed into a course in which the teacher designed and produced digital video-supported cases with the contribution of the students. The cases functioned as the learning material for the students enrolled in the online version of the course. The research focuses on the following questions: Can designing, producing and solving digital video-supported cases support a meaningful studying and learning process for students, and contribute to their emotional involvement? The results indicate that designing, producing and solving digital video-supported cases supports meaningful learning, especially the characteristics of activeness, contextuality, constructivity, transference and collaborativity, and it also contributes to students' positive emotional involvement. Nevertheless, collaboration was also a reason for negative emotions such as frustration and irritation, therefore posing challenges for the teacher.
