Description:

This animation was developed to assist beginners of conceptual database modeling by visually illustrating the methodology to model the data with its relationships as an ER Diagram and to map the design to a relational database schema. The goal of this animation is to empower students with the knowledge to design their own relational database. As noted [M. Chilton, “Data Modeling Using Entity Relationship Diagrams: A Step-Wise Method,” Journal of Information Systems Education, vol. 17, no. 4, pp. 385-394, 2006], ,"the concept of designing a relational database can be a difficult one for beginning students to assimilate" [5]. DesignDB was developed to assist beginners of conceptual database modeling by visually illustrating the methodology to model the data with its relationships as an Entity Relationship (ER) Diagram and to map the design to a relational database schema.
