Prototyping law games

MargaretConcept Art, Concepts & Plans

I prototyped several possible ways to build a law game app. I did this in a low-fidelity way, by sketching out storyboards and game interfaces with pen and paper. In Prototype 2, I have a selection of types of games rather than 1 type –a variety of interactions –you as the judge evaluating a text, you and a crossword, you … Read More

Presidential head concept design

MargaretConcept Art, Concepts & Plans

One of the possible new quizzes we’re thinking of building is a more civics-oriented quiz, about US history & the development of its legal system. From one of our brainstorming session, we had the idea of a presidential head character as one of the design elements. Here is the sketch!

New Game Interfaces

Review Questions Interface for law study game

MargaretConcepts & Plans, Design Process

I am finally figuring out how to code the ‘review questions’ feature for the quiz — letting the user take a moment after finishing a round of the game to look over the questions she’s gotten right & wrong. But how to design this interface? I sketched it and started to lay it out in GameSalad….

Looking Past Beta… mapping out a better Law Dojo

MargaretConcepts & Plans

I am sketching out where to be moving: what the next stages for Law School Dojo apps should be.  I’m thinking to move towards a non-law student market — for people who are interested in law for their own personal use (knowing your rights regarding landlords, police, online privacy, neighbor disputes, etc….) and for their entertainment (watching Law & Order, … Read More
