A class for professionals could be quite different from one for college students due to a variety of backgrounds and work experience. Some of them want to make a career change; some of them want to catch up with the state-of-the-art technologies. In class, concepts, principles, and equations might be too abstract when there are no good real life examples. Object relationship modeling in object-oriented software engineering course is a good example. This article briefly shows a few cases of how real life examples can help professional students understand the covered contents, which have been experimented in class using the Rational Rose enterprise suite. Issues on how examples get picked and how they should be explained and discussed are analyzed. A result of the experiment is given.
