This course gives you the skills to test the key aspects of Web-based applications with a focus on Internet, Intranet and E-Business. You will learn how how to use a systematic, structured test process and effective methods of testing Web-based applications, along with different techniques for identifying risks that are specific to Web-based applications. Using a case study, you will then develop appropriate plans and test cases for performing your own test of a Web-based application.
Who should attend?

Information Technology system testers or Quality Assurance personnel who are responsible for testing Web-based software. If you are an IT team leader or manager, or an IT developer or designer, you would also benefit as you gain a better understanding of the complexity and issues involved in testing Web-based software.

Any prerequisites?

You should first complete IB-Learning's Software Testing Essentials and be familiar with system development life cycles, Web-based software, and Testing processes and principles.
