Title

UML a Project

Overview

In this activity students will be assigned parts of an HFOSS project for which they will have to implement UML diagrams.

Prerequisites
  • Successful completion of CS 1 course that covers classes, functions, variables.
Learning
Objectives
After successfully completing this activity, the learner should be able to:
  • Learn about UML diagrams, and understand them.
  • Create UML diagrams for a given part of an HFOSS project.
Process Skills
Practiced


Background

Directions

Part 1: Install UML software

  • We recommend using ArgoUML ( http://argouml.tigris.org/ ) which is a free open source software that can be used to create UML Diagrams.


Part 2: Readings

Part 3: UML Diagrams implementation

  • The instructor will select an HFOSS project and selected source files will be assigned to different 3-student teams.
  • Each team will then implement several UML diagrams:
    • following the procedures prescribed in Part 2
    • using a software like the one(s) recommended in Part 1
    • the UML diagrams should cover the entire source code assigned for each team
    • (optional) using a Git repository, the instructor will collect all these diagrams and also make them available to all other students. They can help guide every team (in case some teams are challenged by this assignment)

Part 4 (Optional): Evaluate

  • If time is available, students should randomly shuffle the projects among themselves and they will verify and (if needed) correct the UML diagrams given.


Part 5 (Optional): Upload the UML Diagrams

  • If the selected HFOSS project does not have UML diagrams done, the students' work should be submitted to the persons in charge of the project documentation.


Deliverables

UML Diagrams converted into JPG or PDF files

Assessment

UML diagrams can be graded using some rubric.
