Canvas – A new online learning platform for BBST® Foundations

Starting with this next BBST® Foundations class, we will be using a new online learning platform – Canvas from Instructure.

Canvas is a new and modern platform, allowing both students and instructors to easily navigate through the course modules and intuitively use its online features.

Amongst our favorite features, besides the intuitive user interface and modern look, we would like to mention:

  • An excellent mobile application, allowing you to check your progress, read and contribute to discussions and read assignments and lectures straight from your mobile phone or your tablet (either from iOS or Android devices)Canvas App on iTunes

     

  • A calendar view with all the deadlines for each of the assignments in the class and your scheduled meetings with the instructors, all setup in your own time zone. The calendar feed allows you to easily add all these to your own personal calendar, so you have all the important dates saved on your computer or on your mobile phone.

Launching the blog!

Hello,

Welcome to the Altom BBST courses blog!

 

We are excited to start a collaboration with Kaner, Fiedler & Associates, LLC and to be offering a new generation of public BBST® courses.

We will try to gather here extra information useful for the courses, as well as impressions and tips from other people involved in the course, instructors and former students.

Together with the course and the BBST community, we would like this blog to help with building a platform for enabling learning in the testing area.
Testing is a complex activity, requiring a lot of knowledge and skills, when performed with passion and dedication. This is an idea we want to spread, and if you are inspired by it, we want to encourage you to further share it and build on it.

We also work with the idea that testing can be a valuable tool in software development projects. We enjoy learning experiences that we find useful in our work. This is what we would like to give further: an effective learning process, through which testing can be learned at a level which renders it very useful in the software development process.

 

Let’s make the most out of learning and testing!
