The aim of this study is to develop a manga material which incorporates collaborative learning from the perspective active learning, and to survey its ease of use, effectiveness and whether it helps university students studying to become teachers capture the main points. This study is a pilot study for developing a learning program, Case Method Teaching Materials Using Manga, which cultivates pragmatic skills to teach active learning. The survey revealed that the users positively evaluate the material in terms its ease of use and effectiveness. However, it was found insufficient in facilitating capture of the main points in carrying out collaborative learning. This suggests that capturing the main points in carrying out collaborative learning is difficult if it is attempted through the learners’ reading of the material. Moreover, there is a necessity to modify the materials. The pilot study has therefore shown that we need to devise ways to encourage learners’ reading of the material in order to develop Case Method Teaching Materials Using Manga.
