Abstract: In the EU-funded project Embed4Auto, we have developed an Integrated Learning Environment (ILE) to support UML/SysML training. The ILE combines independent distance learning with collaborative problem solving and social networking. The learning environment incorporates a set of learning resources on the modeling languages UML2 and SysML, an educational modeling tool supporting class and sequence diagrams and a tool for sharing and discussing solutions to modeling exercises. First evaluations of the ILE have shown promising results.
