How to Use the UPK Player
The User Productivity Kit, also known as UPK, is an on-demand training tool that will allow you to learn how
to use PeopleSoft, at your own pace, and at a time that fits into your work schedule.
UPK training content is delivered in an assortment of learning modes. The simulation modes, called "Playback
Modes" include high quality, visual formats, which allow you to choose the mode most applicable to your
individual learning style. We will use two playback modes (See It! and Try It!). In addition to the playback
modes, printable documents called “job aids” will be available for most topics.
The See It! mode allows you to learn by watching the topic. All of the required activities, such
as moving the mouse and entering data, are completed automatically. You can pause, resume,
and replay the training at any time.
The Try It! mode is an interactive simulation that allows you to move through the steps. You
will be prompted for mouse clicks and/or keystrokes to complete the task.
The Print It! mode allows you to print documentation in the form of a Job Aid.
The different modes (See It!, Try It!, or Print It!) will appear after the Topic level
The Outline appears on the left side of the UPK Player window. It will display available training topics. You
can expand and collapse items by clicking the plus [+] and minus [-] symbols.
There are three levels in the outline:
A module is used to organize a specific unit of learning. It can contain other documents
such as sections, topics, or even other modules to form a component of an outline.
A section is very similar to a module. The main difference between a section and module
is its visual representation that can help you differentiate between the components of
your outline and locate areas in the structure faster.
A topic represents a series of recorded steps that complete a task in an application. This is
the training exercise level.
