Start this section with the business requirements for your EdTech project. Outline the target audience and the monetization possibilities you wish to implement. Then, you can move to functional requirements, detailing the features your product should have to fulfill the users' needs. For every function, describe its input and output specifics, and operations, as you see them. Each feature should come with one or several use cases for the user personas you have identified within the general system description. Include preconditions and post-conditions, scenarios and alternate scenarios to make your use cases actionable.
The full list can include system requirements on:
- Durability and adaptability
- Information management
- Policy and regulation
- Life cycle management
Include as much detail as possible for every aspect of the SRS. The more information you provide in the document, the better the development team will understand your vision. As a result, they will implement your ideas quickly.
Complete your list of system requirements with a requirement traceability matrix (RTM). It ensures each requirement is covered by test cases before the product is ready. The RTM takes on the form of a spreadsheet with requirements identifiers and test case scenarios linked to corresponding documents. The matrix allows you to assess the requirements implementation at a glance and is easy to create, so there is no reason to omit it in your SRS.
Round up the system requirement specification with appendices, if necessary, and add a revision history table to track the changes to the SRS document.
