I’m a software tester/coordinator at a UK university. We use Blackboard as our virtual learning environment, which I’m looking for advice on how to test.
Have any of my fellow testers had any experience with the Blackboard platform?
Blackboard is delivered to us on a SaaS modal which means we can get updates to the environment on a regular basis; however we have no control over this and sometimes updates are drop at very short notice.
The issue we are currently experiencing is that updates are introducing new settings that change things without us knowing. This is something we’re trying to stop but in the meantime I would like to use some automation to check for what has changed.
I’ve been exploring visual regression checkers like Applitools, which seems promising (this would enable me to have a baseline of before the update to compare). I’ve also built a framework using WebDriver in Visual Studio, but this is proving very laborious with hundreds of settings to check!
Even if you have no experience with Blackboard, perhaps you could offer advice on what tools I could look into.
Any help would be most appreciated!
