From Dede Hourican (Marist College)
For the past month, the Sakai Quality Assurance (QA) team has been conducting weekly QA “Test Fests” on Thursdays, 10am to noon Eastern time (15:00 – 17:00 GMT). These communal testing sessions provide an opportunity to troubleshoot and document issues with the support of the QA Team and other community members. We have had a great turnout to this point – there are a total of 81 people currently enrolled in the Sakai QA channel in Apereo’s Slack instance. However, we need your help in this sizeable effort of testing Sakai 11.
Thus far, the QA Team has been working on the following:
- Focused testing of the new Morpheus interface, to identify UI issues;
- Consolidating/updating of Sakai tool regression test scripts, to provide a clear and consistent set of testing materials;
- Streamlining of the QA process, to allow members of the community to more easily contribute to the QA effort.
With this in mind, we have provided a simplified Sakai 11 QA Hub in confluence with useful information for those interested in testing. This Hub provides information for joining the Sakai QA list, as well as our Sakai QA Slack channel.
If any WebLearn users would like to help with the QA effort then please get in touch with the central WebLearn team via firstname.lastname@example.org. Oxford will be moving to version 11 over the summer and helping with QA would be a great way of helping out the Sakai community and getting first-hand experience of the upcoming release.
