Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A class for professionals could be quite different from one for college students due to a variety of backgrounds and work experience. Some of them want to make a career change; some of them want to catch up with the state-of-the-art technologies. In class, concepts, principles, and equations might be too abstract when there are no good real life examples. Object relationship modeling in object-oriented software engineering course is a good example. This article briefly shows a few cases of how real life examples can help professional students understand the covered contents, which have been experimented in class using the Rational Rose® enterprise suite. Issues on how examples get picked and how they should be explained and discussed are analyzed. A result of the experiment is given.
