Providing content to thousands of users across the globe/nation without any hindrance is the USP of any E-learning service providing business. Since thousands of users are accessing the web-based software/application it has to be in exemplary condition in terms of access, speed, functionality and security.
Testing an E-learning app from the development stage itself will make sure that the product is defect-free and can result in reduced risk since a huge amount of money as well as manpower is poured to make software like these.
Last but not least, people have to like the app, they must feel it easy to navigate and access all the content that’s available on the platform. So user experience has of utmost importance to assure the success of any E-learning platform.
There are certain standards devised to make the communication and seamless working between LMS (Learning Management System) and the user easier. So it’s a must that any E-learning system in existence should comply with these protocols to offer a better experience to the users.
Before we leap into testing you have to have an idea about such protocols.
Designed for LAN based and CD-ROM based training meant for highly secure HTTPS data transferring. AICC also helps the content to be hosted on a separate server
This model is basically used to define communication between client-side content and LMS. SCORM models help in making the content user- friendly. SCORM model is also good for migration.
An open-source model developed for mobile-friendly app despite the device. Storing and retrieving data when relied on this model is a piece of cake and its non-dependant on the LMS.
It doesn’t matter which standard your app follow or comply. It has to meet the specification defined in the model and for that testing is a must as it serves as a validation technique also.
