Education has become a digital experience. From early years right through to higher education and into the workplace, websites, online portals and mobile applications are shaping the education frameworks for learners of all ages and professionals at all stages of their career.
The highest standards are imperative – not only in terms of the digital learning materials themselves, but across the whole user experience for both students and their teachers. Through comprehensive, website application testing, BugFinders help companies to create engaging, secure and accessible eLearning experiences that meet the high expectations of users at all stages of their educative journey and ensure that they are connected, no matter where they are.

Challenges for Education & eLearning
The diverse range of users for education and eLearning applications leads to an equally diverse range of challenges that face companies operating in the space. From toddlers to university students and on to employees, each cohort presents unique challenges to developers.
These challenges include:
Gauging usability, especially amongst young children
Ensuring privacy and security, and especially in the case of children, safety
Accuracy of translation due to the growing base of international students and workers
Multi-device and multi-location functionality
