Thanks for the suggestion Tim,

However I don’t think that’s what a ‘use case’ is.  A use case is a bare bones user experience.  In the style of use case that our current use case document follows (and also that we follow at Vitalsource) a bogus user is specifically named—and if Shane’s writing the use case with a clever name.

I think what you’re talking about is a design sketch and that is what we’re specifically enjoined *not* to do in this document.

(And even if we were I still don’t know enough about the behind-the-curtain machinery that we’re heading for).

Cheers,

John

Joleen has been a pioneering registrar in advocating an 'extended transcript' that includes not only the standard set of course grades but also adds supplementary information on learner competencies.  These might include work experiences and non-educational but marketable skills. Upon the request of her students Joleen issues digital credentials that encapsulates an extended transcript.
