Legacy Case-Based Learning (CBL) medical educational systems aim to boost the learning and educational process but lacks the support of Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine (SNOMED) and flip learning concepts. Integrating these vocabularies can exploit the learning outcomes and build confidence in students while making decision to rehearsal in advance before attending the actual CBL. The scope of this research covers delivering of medical education in interactive and intelligent way, efficient knowledge sharing, promoting team work environments, and building a knowledge-base for future to support automated computerized feedback. To achieve these goals, we propose a tool called Interactive Case-Based Flip Learning Tool (ICBFLT) that covers formulation of CBL case summaries, getting standard computerized help from both SNOMED vocabulary and state of the art solutions, and finally getting feedback from concerned tutor. In order to evaluate the ICBFLT, a scenario from the School of Medicine, University of Tasmania, Australia has been considered. This is an ongoing work and this paper gives an overview of the ICBFLT architecture with some intermediate results. The evaluation shows that the system has satisfied its users in term of interaction upto 70%.
