Execute Beta Test
You may think the course is perfectly clear, but until you've had fresh eyes try and take your course as a student, you won't be sure the information is easily understood. It is best to select a group of people with a variety of backgrounds to review the course. Look for at least one content expert, one content novice, someone who is technologically savvy, and someone technologically challenged.
Questions to ask yourself:
- Who should beta test my course?
- Are these people representative of the spectrum of people who would take this course?
- What do I want the beta testers to tell me?
- How will I get this information from them?
- How will I determine the amount of time beta testers spend on the course?
- What will I give beta testers in return for their time?
Depending on what reviewers say about your course, you may need to review several previous steps to make adjustments before offering the course to a larger audience.
