Slide 11: Use Cases & designs Use cases, stated simply, allow description of sequences of events that, taken together, lead to a system doing something useful" [1]. Each use case provides one or more scenarios that convey how the system should interact with the users called actors to achieve a specific business goal or function. Use case actors may be end users or other systems. Use cases typically avoid technical jargon, preferring instead the language of the end user or domain expert. Use cases are often co-authored by business analysts and end users.
Slide 12: Participants: Actors Citizens: have multiple agenda’s but most are just seeking information about how to perform various functions or get information about a process. Researcher: May want to make different comparisons and research various aspects of the law and how “actors” engage with the law across sector, economies and geographies. NGO Field worker / investigator: May want to capture impacts in the field, record what is going on in local areas in formal and informal laws. seeking stories from the field and opportunities to capture popular opinion. law makers: may be seeking inputs for reform or better understanding of populist thoughts and current stresses in the system Law Student / lawyer: interested in either research, study of laws or discovering out of sync records.
Slide 13: Actor information needs • • • • • • • • • • • How do I???? What does it mean if? What does the word ? Mean Why is the procedure like this? What does it cost to? How long does it take to? How do I share my story? Who can help me to? Who can help make this better? What would improve this process? What is best practice? In terms of cost and activity.
