Solution

A Custom Release Planning Tool

Right off the bat we knew that quality software development is not done without proper strategic planning. As part of this production we developed a Release Planning Interactive Learning Object to emulate tools used by project managers for real world planning. The Release Planning tool contains critical functionalities to the software product management discipline that allow students generate detailed tasks and create a release plan for their project that is then shared over Coursera assessment system for peer review.
