Course tracking. Ensure that the final page is set to tracked if you want a completed status and a score only to be passed to the LMS when you have finished the course.
Page tracking. A general point to clarify during the requirements gathering stage (and then ensure you test) related to number 1 – do you want the course to be complete as soon as you open it, or when you’ve completed all the pages, or when you’ve got a certain score in the assessment?
Knowledge checks. If you don’t want these included in the overall score sent to the LMS be sure to untick the scorm tracking for these assessments. (All scorm related things can be tested using the ADL test suite)
Ensure all popups are easy to open/navigate to. (Pages with very many popups could be set to untracked so it doesn’t matter if they don’t visit each and every popup)
Page locking. If pages are locked based on completing other pages, make sure that the instructions are clearly defined as to how to unlock it.
IE6/IE7/IE8 testing. Don’t assume that because something works in IE9 it will work in older IE versions (mostly skin bugs can be found here)
Video encoding. Test in all browsers and ensure you can scrub the video.
Tiny unnecessary scrollbars are often found in text boxes which we flag up as minor bugs - removing a spare carriage return can often help here.
Ensure all hyperlinks work (both internal and external to the course) as these can often be forgotten when moving/removing pages
Ensure course navigation is correct – ie that you can navigate all the way through the course including any branches using next/back buttons and also the navigation tree if using.
Ensure the course works on the LMS its aimed at.
Image size. i.e. checking that authors haven’t used very large PNGs or JPGs that are super high resolution but completely overkill and bad for Web delivery.
User instruction text. Checking that user instruction is appropriate for the target device(s). e.g. “Click here”, “hover there” type instructions are no good if the course is to be delivered via the iPad or any other touch device.
