Examples of Multimedia Use on Legal Aid And Beyond

The use of mutlimedia on statewide websites offers the legal aid community ways to provide richer user interfaces and take advantage of delivery formats other than traditional text-based content. The Flash-based A2J interface, for examples, provides a much more user-friendly interface for pro se litigants to fill out forms than html-based forms. Animated movies allow us to demonstrate how to use a web page. Videos allow us to create content that can be used by individuals with low literacy or whose primary languages are not easily reduced to text. Combining multimedia with streaming media servers allows us to extend basic multimedia into real-time communications systems that support video broadcasting (or webcasting), web-based video conferencing, live chat, and e-learning applications. Below are a number of instances of multimedia in legal aid and beyond. For information on developing Flash applications, see the Flash resources article on this site.

About the Legal Services XML Project (LSXML)

Legal Services XML ("LSXML") is a working group made up of representatives from various organizations, including LSC, Pro Bono Net, Illinois Legal Aid Online, Kaivo, and the Legal Services National Technology Assistance Project. The goal of LSXML is to make easy and efficient the exchange of data between various members of the equal justice community by creating standards for sharing data, managing pilot testing of those standards, and working with providers to implement and train users on those standards.

LSXML - Categorizing Information: The National Subject Matter Index Taxonomy

The National Subject Matter Index tries to provide a comprehensive taxonomy of topics for the legal aid community by which documents and data can be indexed. It is currently in use on all statewide Web sites for managing content and is in use in some case management systems as well.

The index is updated periodically by the Legal Services XML group and suggestions may be made through this form.

Case Management Databases

by James Spencer, Missouri

 

Several terms are used when talking about Case Management Systems (CMS), which typically relate to databases because case management systems use a database structure to hold and index data. This article will define and explain these terms as they relate to databases and case management systems.
