The UPK (UMass Productivity Kit) Player allows you to view a tutorial in several modes. The course guide link will take you to a document containing instructions for every topic in the UPK. When you open the UPK Player, expand the list of topics and click on one, you will see a link to a job aid with specific instructions for that particular exercise.
When you click on a link below to the UPK, a new window will open. Click on the + to expand the list of topics. After you select a topic, you will be able to choose a mode. The "See It" mode allows you to watch a brief video; the "Try It" mode waits for you to click and enter values; for the "Know It" mode you must first print out the job aid for the topic and then follow the directions.
Be sure to allow pop-ups.
