Prototypes help users get an idea of what the system will look like, and make it easier for users to make design decisions without waiting for the system to be built Brainstorming - This involves identifying as many ideas as possible and ranking the ideas into those considered most useful by the group Use Cases - This is a picture of actions a system performs, depicting the actors.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
