Abstract

Modeling education is necessary for software engineers because object-oriented modeling is used widely in the computing industry. However, there may be problems in terms of the "necessity of models," "modeling methodology," and "model refinement" when learning about modeling. Model-driven development (MDD) can verify the accuracy of models and generate the source code, which allows a rogrammer to reduce the development time required to check the software so he or she can focus on the modeling process. Thus, modeling should be taught with MDD because it allows students to acquire modeling skills in a short period of time. We developed an education program using MDD for novices. The first concept used by this program is "software modeling education using MDD," which allows students to repeat model refinement in a short period of time. The second concept used by this program is "spiral education in the fundamental techniques and development xperience,"which allows students to learn fundamental techniques and understand methods that utilize these fundamental techniques. We conducted a trial course in a college, and the results confirmed improvement of modeling skills and reduction in the above-stated problems.
