Tutor and UPK are both very successful tools for what they do. They are complementary tools, not competitive tools. They bring their own assets to your organization’s documentation effort.
Oracle Tutor provides model documents with best business practice procedures for you to use as is or to modify according to your needs. It also provides document templates for you to use to create any other supporting documents for those procedures to then be combined into a User Desk Manual. In addition, Tutor also provides a library of formal training material, complete with power point presentation files to support the instructor delivery. Tutor is an excellent tool for standardizing global documentation and keeping your documents SOX and ISO compliant.
Oracle’s User Productivity Kit (UPK) provides a quick and easy way to create project and training documents. After recording system screen shots to create step-by-step instruction, you choose the output desired, producing training material, eLearning modules, test scripts or job aides. UPK provides documents for Oracle, JD Edwards and People Soft for you to use as they come or you can modify them as you see fit.
These tools can be used separately in conjunction, depending on your project needs. If you have experience using Tutor and the UPK together, share it by leaving a comment.
