Navigating the ‘Technological Audit’ Process

Ensuring a Seamless Start with the Right Tools

The ‘Technological Audit’ is a critical first step in ensuring that all participants can access and engage with your course content without any hitches.

This audit focuses on guiding you through assessing the technological requirements and instructions you provide to your participants. It’s about ensuring every participant starts on equal footing, with clear, straightforward instructions and the right tools at their disposal.

Audit Action Items

  1. List of Required Technologies

    • Audit Point: Review the list of software, web tools, and apps you’ve provided. Is it comprehensive and up-to-date? Does it include all necessary details like version numbers, compatibility information, and installation instructions?
    • Guidance: Ensure that you’ve clearly listed and described each piece of technology your course requires. Participants should know exactly what they need to download or access, how to do so, and any costs involved.
  2. Browser Compatibility and System Requirements

    • Audit Point: Check if you’ve specified which browser types are supported and the minimum computer specifications needed. Have you provided instructions for participants to check their system’s compatibility?
    • Guidance: Clearly state the supported browsers and required system specifications. Offer guidance on how participants can check their systems and provide alternatives or solutions for those who may not meet these requirements.
  3. Accessibility and Navigation

    • Audit Point: Evaluate how you present and share direct links to necessary technology. Are these links easy to find, current, and functional? Do they lead participants exactly where they need to be without unnecessary complications?
    • Guidance: Ensure all links are working and take users directly to the download page or resource. Consider providing a step-by-step guide or tutorial for downloading and setting up required technologies.
  4. Support and Troubleshooting

    • Audit Point: Assess the level of support you offer for technological issues. Do you provide FAQs, troubleshooting guides, or direct support channels?
    • Guidance: Offer comprehensive support resources to help participants overcome common technical issues. This might include FAQs, troubleshooting guides, or information on how to contact technical support.

By following these audit points, course creators can ensure that their ‘Getting Started’ section, or module, is technologically foolproof, paving the way for a smooth and effective course experience for all participants.



Course experience design isn’t just about imparting knowledge;
it’s about crafting a journey that resonates, inspires, and sticks.

When you design with the learner in mind, you’re not just building a course; you’re creating an experience that leaves a lasting imprint, motivating and moving your participants towards not just completion, but mastery and fulfillment.
