UML Fundamentals

Video description

In this UML Fundamentals training course, expert author Simon Bennett will teach you about the various diagram types in UML, as well as UML common elements. This course is designed for the absolute beginner, meaning no previous UML experience is required.

You will start by learning about the models and diagrams in UML. Simon will then cover the various diagrams in UML, including class diagrams, object diagrams, advanced class diagrams, interaction sequence diagrams, interaction communication diagrams, and activity diagrams. This video tutorial also covers state machine diagrams, component diagrams, and deployment diagrams. Finally, you will learn about modeling with UML, including how to choose a UML modeling tool.

Once you have completed this computer based training course, you will have gained a practical knowledge of the core of UML, as well as the various diagram types. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.
