UML diagrams would be the an idea to the challenge posted by Manu.

There are eight useful, standard UML diagrams, which are: use case diagram, class diagram, sequence diagram, Collaboration Diagram, state diagram, activity diagram, component diagram, and deployment diagram.

Instead of rushing, I think it'd be better if we approached this step by step.
User image
Get to know well massidea.org's layout and how it works.
User image
Giving a familiar application which is described in UML diagrams can make students have clearer understanding of how UML diagrams function.
User image
Good UML diagrams can not be created unless students grasp the object of UML - content and structure of massidea. When everything become explicit making UML diagrams simple task.

As a BIT students, we will have chance to learn about System Development Life Cycle (SDLC). Using UML as a tool, we will model the architecture and functionality of Massidea.org. Later, we can promote the improvements for the system.

Laurea has provided us fantastic tool to do different diagrams. Now we have to use our teachers excellent skills in MS Visio to make us experts in it. learning starts now!

We already have the basics in UML, let's get started and create some diagrams
User image
Good UML diagrams should simply describe the functionality of a system, rather than merely representing details of individual features in a system. At a glance the system´s functionality should be obvious. In my opinion, it is vital to first fully comprehend the functionality of Massidea.

I think that maybe it could help if we had an example of a UML diagram designed in MS Visio depicting a particular aspect of Massidea. It may help clear the air on what exactly is required of us in this task of UML design.

When you said that we will learn to make UML diagrams and in this case create diagrams of the Massidea website, what does exactly this mean ? Because UML is a standard to design many different kind of diagrams...

UML diagrams Because i have to Designing ICT course
User image
You can't do something you don't understand. So let's try to understand.

At Laurea there is a course on Designing ICT Systems (A0105). Let's solve this challenge in the course so that the students can learn about UML in a real life project.

Gradually, things are getting clearea and better with this approach

After having some lecture and designing UML diagram using Microsoft visio the concept of UML have been clear.And studying book "Systems Analysis and Design with UML" will definitely help a lot.

I have already read basic idea about mass idea and UML.Its makes my idea clear a little.I think now i have to read the book related with system designing.More exercise and problem will be helpful to make our ideas clear.

I think I need some intensive care about this. Actually, drawing Diagram is not too tough for us, but the thing which I need is to develop Total UML.
I hope for the best!!!

Firstly, I will try to read books in advance so that I can understand about UML, especially its convention to describe the business models. Secondly, I will try to use UML to model Massidea.org and exploit this chance to learn about practical design. Besides reading books, if I have some problems, I will try to find solutions in the Internet. I believe Blaze's idea of learning by Youtube is a good idea (^_^)

UML Use Case Diagrams: Tips and FAQ http://www.andrew.cmu.edu/course/90-754/umlucdfaq.html. This is also a great site to learn more about UML Use Case Diagrams(UCD)

let me get some idea about massidea.org and UML diagram first then i will try to solve this challenge
(29 Sep 2011)
After having my First UML design introduction using MS Visio, my understanding of UML has started to become a little bit clearer than before.
Though the overall picture or the connection between UML and the real life, or rather in our case Massidea is not as clear to me.
(27 Sep 2011)
I think first of all, I should learn about the basic definition of UML diagram. Then through the examples teachers give me, I do some small projects to practice. And at the end of the course, I will do the real project to show what I have learned after this course.

Question:What are the objectives of designing program with UML?
(25 Sep 2011)
I have a question: should we have the competence to design program with UML after this course?
(25 Sep 2011)
There is a book 'Systems Analysis and Design with UML',we can borrow from Laurea library.Maybe we can get more detail about UML from it:)
(05 Oct 2011)
That's really good!
The challenge is to learn about UML and starting from Use-Cases. How would you like to learn?
(05 Oct 2011)
My one Idea is just Practice & Teamwork !!!
(27 Sep 2011)
Naturally I would like to learn. I have been reading the book and I have no doubt being present in the classes will make things clearer. The book has some illustrations but mostly its a big block of text that i'm using some time deciphering.
