Pairing Technology with Storytelling to Reimagine Learning

As part of case study development at the Harvard Business School, the IT Multimedia Development team partners with faculty to pioneer innovative, media-rich variations on the traditional HBS case study. These products contain powerful videos, graphics, and interactive elements that enable faculty and students to dive deeper into the challenges dominating the world today. 

The impact of the multimedia case is that it puts everything in context. People’s stories come across in a much more vibrant and emotional way.
