We’ve just finished the first round of user testing the prototype version of MyLawBC! The prototype is a first draft of the website and we asked people to try it out to see what works and what doesn’t.
At this point in the testing, we’re focused on the functionality of the guided pathways — how people get from point A to point B — and the general look and feel of the site. Future rounds of testing will put a bigger focus on the legal content and information. but right now we want to make sure that you’ll be able to get to that content.
We’re still compiling the results, but the feedback we’ve seen has been great. It’s useful and it will help us create a clear, user-friendly website.
We would like to thank Access Pro Bono, People’s Law School, Courthouse Libraries BC, and our Terrace office for helping us spread the word and connecting us with people. We’d also like to thank all the people, including colleagues from the Ministry of Justice and PLEI community groups, who donated their time to give us their feedback.
While testing the prototype, we’ve also been busy developing the site’s content. Once we’ve got that all online, the site will be ready for another round of testing, feedback, and revisions. This constant process of testing and revisions is all part of the process of making a website, and it’s what guarantees that MyLawBC can be a site that will help you solve your legal problem.
