Discussion: CRC Cards

The Student Information System Requirements Definitions (SISRD) document is the requirements definition document of a new software product that keeps track of the records of both courses and their offerings as classes for educational institutions.

The goal of this software product is to maintain and track information about the courses offered by the institution and the classes with which these courses are offered. The product supports two kinds of classes— online classes accessible over the internet and face-to-face classes offered on the grounds of the educational institution. The users of the system are the staff of the institution.

You are hired as a consultant software architect to design the class responsibility collaboration (CRC) cards for this system. From the Courses and Classes Records System Requirements Definitions document, identify the classes of the system. Using the provided CRC card template, document each class showing its responsibilities, collaborations, attributes, and relationships.

Embed your diagram into your post to the discussion forum with each class showing its responsibilities, collaborations, attributes, and relationships. For instructions on embedding files, view the document.

After embedding your model, make sure to complete the other deliverables listed below:
•CRC cards
•Verification and validation of your work
•An explanation of your work and how you arrived at your solution
•A reflection on your learning experience and lesson learned
