Quality Testing and Editing Strategies for Designers and Developers

Event Date/Time

  • Thursday, June 20, 2019
    8:30 am - 11:30 am


800 NE Oregon St
United States

Do you know how to test e-learning modules and course materials?

Reviewing is not enough. Testing and editing are two separate disciplines that require a skill set different from instructional design and development. This session provides an overview of quality control and assurance principles and how learning teams can use them to create a quality-focused process.

You'll work to find the errors in learning materials while using testing and quality control strategies culled from various industries, but adapted for training materials. You'll learn where errors are most likely hiding and get tips for finding them. You'll also learn how to see a course through learners' eyes and gain insight into how to predict the unexpected paths they may take. Additionally, you'll learn how to consistently document errors and communicate them to developers.

At the end of this session, learners will be able to:

  • Explain the importance of prioritizing quality control throughout the development process.
  • Implement strategies for finding errors in materials.
  • Document errors using a consistent pattern that gets developers the information they need.​
