5 Reasons to Use GenMyModel in the Classroom

Do you teach UML? Many universities and colleges teach it as part of their Computer Science curriculum. We have some great reasons to use GenMyModel as part of your classroom setting.


Using an online UML tool in the classroom has many advantages. Here are 5 of them.

1. No Installation

GenMyModel requires no installation. Students just need to sign up for an account. There is no wait to be granted permission to install it on school machines.

If students are using their personal computers, there are no issues with compatibility as GenMyModel works in all major web browsers on any operating system.

This can be especially useful for online courses..

2. UML Compliant

As GenMyModel uses UML compliant diagrams, students will be able to design a valid UML model every time, helping them to understand what they can and cannot do.

3. Collaboration Features

Students can work together on projects, even in real-time. They can also easily share their diagrams with you, so you can provide feedback and guidance.

4. Private Models

When exam time rolls around, you can create a private project that a single student works on during the exam and then revoke their access to prevent further modifications.

5. Code Generation Features

With the available generation features, you can jump start the next step in the project with the generated code. Students can also learn to create their own custom code generators to use with GenMyModel.

Want to Use GenMyModel in Your Classroom?

Interested in using GenMyModel as a part of your curriculum? We can work together with you to create a program that best matches your specific needs.

For example, if you need 100 private projects for a period of time, we will be able to help you set that up.

If you’d like to find out more about how you can use GenMyModel with your students, you can contact us at any time. We’d be happy to discuss your needs with you.
