In the January 2009 edition of T+D Magazine, Mark Simon provides some extremely helpful tips for LMS courseware developers. His last piece of advice is to ensure that your learners’ workstation configuration is appropriate. Since you may have a variety of learners working and learning from different places, you’ll want to do some checks to make sure your lesson runs smoothly with different browsers, plugins, etc.
If your lesson runs inside a web browser, test your course in the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Netscape, and Safari. Test that your lesson works on Flash levels lower than that of your own. Run your LMS course on computer screens with different resolutions to check for issues. The more tests you run, the greater confidence you’ll have that your LMS course will be successful wherever learners are taking it.
