Frequently Asked Question
Reviewing and testing a new elearning module is a crucial step before launch. Reviews at this point are for checking what you’ve already built, so choose your reviewers carefully. Usually, these key individuals:
- The subject matter expert(SME) to make sure the content is accurate
- A proofreader to find typos, misspellings, and other irregularities
- Thefunctionality expert to patiently check all the interactions and navigation options
Other reviewers you may want to include might be the project manager, those funding the project, and anyone else who could prove beneficial in catching problems earlier rather than after the project is finished.
