I learned a great deal from this website, but I think the most important was the
information on the Rational Rose suite. I am the Configuration Manager for our
class project. This information helps me quite a bit.
Used in course? Yes

20 min of reading lead me to believe that rational has a great system designed to do object oriented programming. Quality of the material was good to great. Although this site is really for selling their products, it does give some good resource material for UML design and analysis. Easy to use.

Technical Remarks:

The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is now the standard notation for software
architecture. It was developed jointly by Grady Booch, Ivar Jacobson, and Jim
Rumbaugh at Rational Software Corporation (with help from others). Based on the
use of the Rambough, Booch and Jacobson's methods (all processes and languages
for designing complex software systems), the UML is the evolution of these and
other approaches to business process, object, and component modeling. The UML
provides the application modeling language for: (1) Business process modeling
with use cases. (2) Class and object modeling. (3) Component modeling. (4)
Distribution and deployment modeling.
