Use Case Modeling Course
Description: Business Analysts analyze and model requirements to support high quality Business Analysis work. One aspect of that analysis and modeling is the interaction between systems and people – Use Case Modeling. Interactions are a type of interface modeling that must be done to describe system requirements required by the user. In this course you will learn how to define the scope of your efforts that need to be modeled, the analysis and documentation required to show the interaction between the system(s) and people, and how to communicate this information so it is understood by all stakeholders ensuring their needs on the project are being met. This course not only explores the use case model but also a more modern approach to document them through rapid prototyping (mockups and storyboards).
