It's true! On WUArchive (wuarchive.wustl.edu) there is a series of slides developed in Microsoft's PowerPoint. The course material includes lesson plans, tests, and workbooks, along with full notes accompanying each slide.
There's one _little_ catch -- it's in the Public Ada Library. Now, the OOP course (there's three courses, one on OOD, OOP, and Software Engineering) covers both C++ and Ada. It was designed to let the students work in both languages to get an objective opinion of the pluses and minuses of each language (gee, what a concept!).
The OOD slides do NOT cover OMT. Some material is used from Booch's OOD book, but not the notation. From looking at the slides, it appears very easy to insert your own notation. The important part for students is communicating the concepts, which (for the price) these slides do a DAMN good job of. <- (Safire's Violation #45: "A perposition is a bad thing to end a sentence with." :-)
Ah, but WHERE on WUArchive are they? If you look under languages/ada/crsware, I believe you'll find them. Good luck!
