How to Properly Test a Learning Management System

A lot of conversations happen when an educational institution chooses an LMS. There are conversations on how your learning management system can deliver the best product to their users, conversations on shaping the partnership between your companies and conversations throughout the entire onboarding process.

Conversations shouldn’t end after integration. In fact, it’s expected that your company provides support throughout the partnership, from launching new product features to confirming software functionality through ongoing automation testing of your content management system.

The eLearning QA Imperative with Today’s Rise in Educational Software Application Demand

eLearning, once an optional approach to educational delivery, has immediately become an essential platform to learners across grades and across the country. Hundreds of top universities and school districts are turning to online education during this pandemic as a way to keep educational curriculums on track, prevent extended school years and to allow graduation-bound students a chance this semester to graduate.

Is your education software application built to support this increased demand?

What Makes Software Testing Imperative for Your Product Business?

Imagine walking to the ATM only to find out that you just got a staggering $924.8 million into your checking account.

In May 1996, more than 800 customers of the First National Bank of Chicago suddenly became billionaires - they were rich beyond their wildest dreams.

Why Risk Launching Without Thorough Mobile App Testing?

As headlined in The New York Times only a couple of weeks ago, the Iowa Caucus debacle was “a systemwide disaster…” and the “app used to tabulate votes may have been inadequately tested.” While additional facts are still coming out, the entire nation watched as there were major delays obtaining and reporting on the Iowa results. And then there was uncertainty as to whether or not they were accurate. While the intent of creating this app was supposed to be positive – to enable simpler more streamlined reporting, faster – we know that’s not at all what happened. And, that’s not exactly how you want your new mobile app rollout and brand to be remembered.

Enhance Your Software Quality Assurance and Testing in 5 Steps

Software quality assurance testing creates customers.

Its value lies hidden within the smooth flow of your UI, the ease with which a problem turns into a solution and the reliability and security that customers come to take for granted.

Software quality assurance is how you turn development innovation into customer experience execution.

Expert Software Quality Management from Day One

Time is the one resource you cannot replenish or write-off. It is unstoppable and unforgiving. It is also a crucial element in the successful delivery of any software development project.

Outsourcing your software quality management makes time an ally.

An experienced QA expert can find efficiencies at every stage of the testing process, from initial planning through to delivery. They can scale up capacity quickly, identify where and when to apply automation, unlock the advantages of Agile development and early bug detection and create a 24-hour cycle of continuous testing and product improvement.

Designing Your Software Quality Control Plan to Be Set Up for Success

As developers, you are not judged solely on your end product. Every step along the way to delivery is monitored and measured against software quality control standards. All your engineering processes, methods, activities and work items are subject to scrutiny. In today’s environment, you can get it wrong even though you, ultimately, got it right.

In the realm of quality assurance, the expectations are that we understand both the need for and the burden of meeting such high software quality control standards. We also know that the way you design your software quality control plan is critical to your professional success.

Optimize Your Software Quality Testing for Consistent Results

This is how important software quality testing is to the success of your product—40% of tech startups fail because of poor or absent QA. Failing to implement one of the fundamental aspects of software development can sabotage your all efforts.

Now, if you are reading this, then the chances are good that you will not be making the mistake of bypassing QA all together. More likely, the danger you run is not optimizing your software quality testing for consistent results that deliver a quality product to your users.

The Value of Offshoring Your Quality Assurance Testing

Offshore quality assurance testing is the solution you need when your potential exceeds your capacity. Your team has the talent and vision to design a great product, but a quality assurance expert can make sure it reaches the market on time, on budget, and with the functionality that delivers the best possible user experience.

The Centralization and Decentralization of QE Organizations

For this, you may consider the two primary models of automating these internal processes: centralization and decentralization. These models structure the quality management. Let’s discuss the benefits and pitfalls of each approach.
