In this paper, the perceived difficulty for students learning purely through auditory and visual means, such as via the standard lecture format, is highlighted through a literature review of learning styles and methods, and a solution based upon interactive computer case-based learning is proposed through a new and continuously evolving simulation environment called Management Laboratory, or simply MagLab. The software was developed using the open-source, high-level scripting language Tcl/Tk and it was designed to run under both Unix/Linux and Windows. An insight into the characteristics of MagLab brings out its many capabilities and strong points of simplicity, user friendliness, intelligence and extensibility.
