The story of an app part 12: Testing times


Bang on schedule, we've given the FCE Academy app its first internal sign-off and sent it out to some real-life users -- ELT teachers from around the world -- to see what they think.

If you follow us on Twitter and Facebook (come on, why wouldn't you?), you'll have noticed us organising a big recruitment drive for teachers. Friends and family are OK, but we needed our app tested by real teachers out there teaching real students. We were delighted with the response -- we have people in Spain, Ireland, England, Israel, Pakistan and Brazil -- a wonderful mix and, most importantly, we've been impressed by their expertise and attention to detail since testing started.

Already, we have logged some minor bugs but nothing has come up (yet!) to cause us sleepless nights. Let's hope everyone's this smiley when development is complete and the app is live (June 14th) ...


P.S. If you'd like a preview, sign up here. We may have another round of testing later in the month.
