Shortcut when testing long courses?
Hi! Does anyone else find doing QA testing tedious? Especially in longgg courses.
I'm hopeful that a SL Guru has come up with an efficient way for a developer to go through the slides faster. In my last position, we built a player with Flash that used xml. We installed an invisible button on every screen that allowed us developers to bypass it. Then we removed it before the final launch.
After numerous reviews of a course in SL, I don't want to review every slide to the end again. Navigation is currently set to either wait for the timeline to end or for variable(s) to be triggered, before I can move on. So, these things need to occur on the slide, even if we devise a way to skip or bypass.
Setting the menu to "Free" is not possible, as I have a custom menu triggered by unique section variables.The menu structure on the master slide changes the state of each menu item as users move from section to section.
Changing the course structure, layout, navigation, is not an option - A sister course has already been launched and it must be consistent. Besides, it is a rather nice navigation system. :o)
So...what ideas do you all have? Thanks for your time!
