Teaching with Visual Paradigm is a pleasure. It is easy-to-use, it is intuitive, and above all it does not get in the way of conveying the semantics of object oriented modeling.
- Dr. Ajaz Rana , Temple University, Philadelphia

While teaching an information systems analysis and design course, I reviewed over 20 CASE tools which supported UML. Visual Paradigm was by far the most intuitive and comprehensive.
