The android instrumentation framework is highly useful for the development of unit tests for the android applications we develop. Given the growing number of android based devices, the inclusion of automatic unit tests within the development process might be crucial for the success of our product.

I have recently completed the development of a new course dedicated for testing on the android platform. You can find its community free version (for personal and academic purposes) available at That course covers the following topics:
Introduction to Testing
Instrumentation Framework
The JUnit Framework
On Device Testing
Remote Testing

In addition, I chose to create few video clips that might assist you when learning how to use the android instrumentation framework.
