Resumé

Rich pictures (RP) are common in object-oriented analysis
and design courses, but students seem to have problems in
integrating them in their projects' workflow. A new software
tool is being developed, specific for RP authoring. To
better understand students' issues and working
practice with RP, and gather requirements for the
tool, we followed a user-centered design approach and
performed a usability test with an early prototype. The
findings suggest the presence of a gap between some of the
modern object-oriented development practices and engineering
students' values: some techniques, like RP, presuppose
design skills that are alien to our students. To bridge
this gap our tool aims at making design-specific skills
optional, enhancing the conceptual analytical skills that
software analysis shares with design. Further studies will
be conducted to assess the impact of the tool on learning.
