User Productivity Kit (UPK)

The User Productivity Kit, also known as UPK, is an online training tool that UTA employees will use to learn business processes. The UPK player allows you to view training content at your own pace and at a time that fits in your work schedule. The training content is delivered in an assortment of learning modes, called "Playback Modes". The simulation modes include three high quality, visual formats, which allow you to choose the mode most applicable to your individual learning style. The available playback modes are:

  • See It! – This 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.
  • Try It! – This 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.
  • Know It! - This is an assessment mode that enables a user to test their knowledge. The user is instructed to complete a task, with little or no assistance, and is scored on how accurately they complete the steps.
