Before we move on to the updates, this two-month course is aimed at beginners in testing. All future students require is motivation, digital literacy, and 18+ hours per week to study.
The authors carefully analyzed the program and suggested changes based on their experience teaching in previous cohorts and student feedback. This has been implemented in the following updates.
QA manual course guide
The course has a concise summary with the essential theory for each lesson. It goes hand in hand with many recommended reading articles and homework assignments that involve independent work and practice with the teacher.
Three levels of homework difficulty
Each homework assignment has two levels, depending on your engagement in the course. 75% of the course assignments have a third level for those who have completed the first two. All completed homework must be documented in Google Docs so that at the end of the course, during the lesson on Git and GitHub, you can upload it to your Git page and present it to future employers.
New lessons and materials
We've added new lessons to broaden the horizons of beginner testers, including:

In the lesson "Test Rail and TestLink test control systems", we replaced the topic of TestLink with Azure DevOps.

We've also updated all the links to relevant articles in QA manual.
