Learn how Note Taking is an Essential part of communicating your testing- Mark Winteringham
You’ve done some testing, you found some interesting things, it all went great, then someone, later on, asks you what testing did you do? What happens? Can you describe in detail what you did? What happens if you were asked that question a week later? Without strong testing notes, giving feedback on what testing you did can become a real challenge. So in this course, we’ll learn:
- A range of different note-taking techniques
- How to use different note-taking techniques to capture your testing
- How to pick approaches that work best for you
So if you want to learn how to improve the way you share your testing work with others. Come join us as we explore and experiment with different note-taking techniques.
This course is part of the Essentials Online learning pathway.
