This course helps participants get a thorough understanding of how to test the basic controls, content, navigability and features of a website or a web or mobile application, in a work-able, real-world environment. The course also goes beyond the basics and discusses the ‘ilities’ – the multiple dimensions of web and mobile quality – such as how to check compatibility, performance, security, usability, inter-operability and operational effectiveness.
