[UPDATE: Beta Test downloading has now finished, thank you! If you still have comments or things you’ve found please do keep writing them up in the comments. If you didn’t manage to download the files, check out the vol. 11 page where it is on sale now!]
The vol. 11 software is now ready for beta testing!
What you get:
1. You get to have the vol. 11 software before anyone else.
2. You get to use it in your classes before anyone else
3. You don’t have to pay for it.
4. Unlike Microsoft who make you buy the product once the beta test is finished, if you make a comment on the blog you’ll be free to keep it as long as you like!
What I ask in return:
1. You play through all the songs, mini lessons & karaokes for every theme
2. You play around with the “words”, game and “words 2″ sections of each theme.
3. Tell me on the blog if there are any mistakes/things that don’t work.
That’s it, really simple! It will probably take an hour or so to do.
At this stage it’s things like spelling mistakes, typing mistakes, buttons that make the wrong sound, crashes or buttons that don’t work type mistakes that I’m looking for i.e. real mistakes.
It’s unfortunately a little too late for things like changing lyrics, pictures etc.! Sorry! Once you’ve gone through everything, setting kids loose on the software is always the best test!
Making the final master is always very, very stressful for me so if you could help by checking the themes and then posting your findings on the blog below (even if it just says “everything is OK!” although if you do have any words of praise that would also be great to hear !) it would really help me out and I’ll be able sign it off and get back to making the mini cards, printable games and maybe even picture books for the themes as well as lots of new stuff!
You can download the file from [UPDATE: Beta Test downloading has now finished, thank you! If you still have comments or things you’ve found please do keep writing them up in the comments. If you didn’t manage to download the files, have a check next week on the vol. 11 page when it goes on sale!]
and can make comments on the blog here.
Thank you so much!
P.S. Get your download early, there will be so many people downloading (thank you!) that I might have to close it down early if it crashes the server.
P.S. If you’re not a VIP member yet, if you buy your Download Pack right now you might still get your vol. 11 if you rush, rush, rush!
P.P.S. Just out of interest, after going through everything on vol. 11 and seeing how much there is there, how much do you think I should charge for it? Forgetting about all the other Genki English prices, just based on your running through the beta test, how much would you think it is worth to you?
