Watch this video of the first day in a software engineering course at Harvard University. The instructor spends the first half of the video exploring a haphazard way to develop a system for putting the class syllabi online. He then discusses the systematic process to complete a course similar to this one, especially the SDLC projects (Unit 10). The video mentions a number of software tools for software development. Do not be overwhelmed, as this is not a programming course. You may find the 30-day free versions of software modeling useful if you have time to use them in Unit 3.
