The Unified Process for EDUcation, or UPEDU, is a web-enabled set of software engineering best practices that provide you with guidance to streamline your team's development activities. UPEDU has been customized from the RUP - an industry-wide process platform - for the educational environment.
Many artifacts are derived from a project case study and are used as examples or templates. UPEDU is to be used along with the cognitive skills needed to perform the various activities required of software process.
This site is a very good resource for students attempting to utilize the Unified Process in a classroom setting without getting too in depth. The main page is a little misleading; appearing more like a book advertisement, but further digging reveals a plethora of process descriptions, example templates, and useful information. There are, however, several places in which the companion book is required or heavily referenced, making it frustrating to seek information without first purchasing the book. All in all, a very good learning site.

Parts of the materials have been used by students as reference materials in two courses on software engineering. The materials embody a customized version of Rational Unified Process for the educational environment. The knowledge base provides guidelines for unifying the software development team by identifying and assigning responsibilities, artifacts, and tasks to members of the team. Many artifacts in the knowledge base are derived from a project case study and are used as examples or templates. A glossary, an extensive bibliography, and whitepapers are available for further reference.
The materials represent educationally significant concepts and models for software engineering even if they have been developed in the context of a commercial process model. They are well prepared and easy to use. Such practical guidance is important for project-based software engineering courses.
