302 BYOL: Quick Mobile Testing Tools for LMS Admins and Non-techies

2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Wednesday, June 8



Ensuring that content from suppliers and developers will work on mobile in your environment is tough. Things get tougher with multi-platform desktop and mobile and bring-your-own-device environments. How can one readily test, verify, debug, or demonstrate mobile eLearning in an LMS?

In this session, you will discover how to do more testing and validation on the desktop. You will learn to use built-in capabilities of your preferred browser (and a second browser) along with simple plugins. Finally, you will leave the session with simple tricks and tools to share iPad or Android screens over WebEx or make video captures.

In this session, you will learn:

  • To fake out your content and learning management systems to test mobile on your laptop or desktop
  • About the benefits of a second browser and plugins for testing
  • About built-in features of your own browser for more convenient testing
  • How live screens can be shared and captured from mobile devices

Novice and intermediate designers and project managers.
