What's a LiveCase?
The CapSource LiveCase tool is designed to help educators and experiential learning program leaders manage synchronous industry projects in a more centralized and streamlined way. LiveCases or “Capstone Projects” are designed to give students exposure to real industry leaders and their most up-to-date challenges. Students often work in teams to come up with the best insights given the agreed-upon project scope. LiveCases can be based on any topic, with organizations of any size, across any industry!

How to Begin your LiveCase Experience.
Create your personalized Request For Proposal (RFP)
Sign-up and begin creating a customized RFP, which can be shared with industry partners. This RFP is where you define your target company, size, industry, and location as well as the project, topic, duration, and modality.
Once created you can begin sharing the RFP with your industry network or contract CapSource to recruit suitable industry partners for you from our extensive network including thousands of exciting companies. In either case, you will be informed of any companies interested in scheduling a meeting or that have submitted a proposal. You can then meet with these companies to review the proposal as well as define any key learning objectives that will be accomplished.
Select Industry Partner and Finalize Project Details
Once you select the Industry Partner that best fits your individual needs, you can then begin finalizing project details. This includes items such as program timelines as well as 360 evaluations.
These fully customizable items are essential in keeping students on track and engaged for the project’s duration. The timeline includes critical information for students such as deadlines, meeting times with industry partners, and post-project evaluation deadlines.
On-board Students and Assign Teams
Once the students are on-boarded to the platform, they will gain access to the company information that is available to them. This information provided by the company allows students to gain a more thorough background on the company and project.
Students can also view the timeline as well as upload deliverables directly on the platform. These deliverables are then available to both professors as well as the industry partners.
Review Project Deliverables, Recieve Industry Feedback, and Track Progress through Evaluations
Easily track submissions of students and provide feedback on the platform. When students submit a deliverable, it becomes available to both the professors and the industry partner under the deliverables tab.
