Document Imaging Help for Graduate Admissions and Registrar’s Office Staff

The document imaging system consists of two components: ImageNow, a software client installed on the computers of staff members in the Graduate Admissions Office and the Registrar's Office, and WebNow, a web-based component that may be accessed by central office staff, but is used primarily by the Graduate Program Directors, GPD Assistants and graduate admissions committee members.

On-line tutorials and printable documents are available to assist you.

On-line Tutorials (UPKs)

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 printable 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.
