Abstract

Applications development for distance teaching has become into a potentiality for the managerial market, specially for the training area. The absence of methodologies and specification languages for these applications can commit the production and development software processes for distance teaching (DT). There are several models used for the specification of applications at the most varied domains of the knowledge. Unified Modeling Language (UML) is characterized as a language (drawing) for systems specification, using OO concepts. Relationship Management Methodology (RMM) is defined as a methodology for hypermedia applications development, with its specification language (LRMM). Scientific community knows that DT applications constitute a knowledge domain, highly complex. Thus, this paper has the objective to present the capacity of LRMM and UML, and to verify their applicability for DT software development.
