Now, more than ever before, more responsibility is being placed on software users to define and validate the systems they acquire. This online course presents two important sides of user involvement in software projects: gathering and documenting user requirements, and testing from the user perspective.
The instructor for this course is Randy Rice, who has designed and facilitated many user acceptance tests in a variety of project settings. Randy also has a very strong background in gathering and defining user requirements. This presentation is for anyone who needs to understand and apply solid techniques for user-oriented activities on a project.This online course takes about 17 hours to complete, including exercises.
