Re: How to test E-learning applications and products?
I work for a company that makes elearning products delivered over the web. I have never used automation, mainly because the company does not yet see the need for automation. I test manually, and yes, I click on every link, every button, everything "clickable". It is tedious but after all, it is testing that I'm doing. Luckily, the developers have developed very good coding habits, and sweep their code for broken links, etc. using HomeSite, which has a useful code sweeper. We have also developed a process of review, which includes a self verification and peer review before being sent to QA for testing. This has reduced the number of errors to less than 10 for an average 60 screen module.
I'm not against automation, in fact, I would love to see the company adopt the practice. I am hopeful that I can eventually convince the management that automation can be used.
The important thing is not to stop questioning.
