THE OPEN BETA TEST STARTED
—Early beta-test registration is closed—
We start rolling out new features and several new solutions under LearningChess 2 in 2019. We’re really excited to be launching the first module, the new learning interface which replaces the good old Adobe Flash shortly. So, we are looking for beta-testers, whose task is to learn chess 🙂 and report us the bugs, if any. The beta test starts on May 31, 2019, and it lasts for two weeks.
How to register* (deadline: May 31, 2019)
Please Sign Up for free to LearningChess and send us the following info:
- your registered email in LearningChess,
- your operating system(s) and version(s)
- your machine type(s)
- your browser(s)** that you can use during the test
- from which course do you want to learn chess (Level 1-2-3)
Don’t think twice about registering, do it right away because the registration deadline is close.
What will you need to do?
After receiving your application, we let you know what lessons we ask you to test, on which machine, operating system, and browser.
So, your tasks are the following at the learning interface test:
- learn chess from the given lessons (daily two on average) on your computer or tablet. Of course, you can additionally learn from other lessons too,
- report bugs, if any (screenshot is preferred),
- tell us your opinion and suggestions about the new learning interface.
Compensation for testing the solution
As we really want to reward you for your work, we offer you a 4-month full access to LearningChess 2 if you complete your tasks above.
If you complete the Tactics Trainer task later by solving 100 puzzles and play 25 chess games in the third phase, you will get 12-months full access altogether.
The best three testers who find the most bugs and give the best feedback get lifetime access to LearningChess 2.
* If you apply to this early update to LearningChess, you accept that it may work incorrectly, disrupt your experience, and in rare cases, cause data loss in your LearningChess progress. We reserve the right to reject an application to create a balanced test or when we reach the number of beta tester limit.
