Modeling Object-Oriented Software: Course Description

'Modeling Object-Oriented Software' is a free undergraduate OpenCourseWare from The Open University that examines the processes involved in creating object-oriented software programs. The course begins with identification and definition of the terms used to describe software programs. Development of a hospital's computer system is used as a case study. The course illustrates system components and the processes employed to create them. The course then introduces how various elements fit into a conceptual model for the software program. The course finishes by introducing block diagrams which are the starting point for beginning the process of writing software code.

Course materials include online unit notes and access to learning tools, like a discussion forum. If you're interested in taking this free course, or wish to learn more, visit the object-oriented software course page.
