In order to design a better web-based system, a designer would like to have notations to visualize how design experts’ know-how can be applied according to one's specific social and technology situation. We propose the combined use of a goal-oriented language GRL and a scenarios-oriented notation UCM for representing design knowledge of web-based systems and information systems in general. Goals are used to depict business objectives, functional and non-functional system requirements. Tasks are used in the exploration of alternative technologies and their operationalizations into system constructs. Actors are used to do role-based analysis on social relationships. Scenarios are used to describe elaborated business processes or workflow. The approach is illustrated with an example of designing a web-based training system.
