Abstract : The Army Excellence in Leadership (AXL) system is an online interactive system for delivering multimedia case method instruction. The intent of the AXL system is to develop leaders with greater interpersonal competence and cultural awareness. To achieve this goal. the AXL research program combines the case method of instruction with Hollywood techniques and interactive online technology. This report describes the technological capabilities of the AXL system, as well as the case method pedagogy underlying the AXL approach. The report describes how the AXL system capitalizes on the best practices of traditional case method instruction and addresses some of the limitations of case method instruction. Additionally, this report outlines how the instructional content in the AXL system relates to the leadership competencies outlined in Army leadership doctrine (FM 6-22) and the tacit knowledge framework for military leaders developed by Sternberg et al. (2000).
