The UPEDU public site contains a wide range of material. Of particular use are the sections, such as the "References" section that contain tables of model stereotypes and compare them to Unified Modeling Language (UML) elements and their use in tools such as Rational Rose. The public site also contains overview material describing UPEDU in general as well as artifact and role sets that give further information and examples in the use of UPEDU.
The student part of the textbook site provides Java source code and PowerPoint presentation pages that are particularly useful for those who own copies of the textbook and can try out this material which may be otherwise unavailable or tedious to copy from the textbook. The detailed description of the text and its contents make it easier for someone who is considering purchasing this text to come to a decision.
The main part of the textbook site consists mostly of links to other sites and resources and information about the textbook itself.
The main part of the textbook site contains a "Standards and Models" section of links categorized by topic, including "Modeling", "Process", "Implementation", and "Testing". Unfortunately most of this headings lead to areas that announce "This list is empty." Good organization is only useful if there is material there to organize. Similarly the "Tools" section has a number of bad links to various software tools.
The student web site's Search option returns a "No results were found while searching the forum message archives", implying that the search is good for the message forum only, not the body of the web site. However, there is no link to the message forum from the student site. Either the message is incorrect,
or there is a message forum that is unavailable. There is a separate search applet on the UPEDU public site which performs an effective search of the main site but takes time to load.
