A VISUAL METHODOLOGY FOR THE DESIGN OF COURSE CONTENTS - A Case Study in Communications Software

Jesús Martínez

Abstract

This paper proposes a novel methodology for the design of courses visually. Our method takes borrowed techniques from Software Engineering such as the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and Model-driven Architecture (MDA). The main goal of this approach is the creation of generic courses that may be refined later depending on different educational contexts. Therefore, teachers will have automatic support from tools in order to schedule lectures, activities or resources. This experience is being carried out in the context of a Communications Software course for different undergraduate degree programs at the University of Málaga.
