It can contain other documents such as sections, topics, or even other modules to form a component of an outline.A section (blue book) is very similar to a module in that it also can contain other documents such as sections, topics, or other modules. 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.

10 Online Self-Help (UPK) Learn how to use the UPK in both a simulated environment and while working with data in a live environment.
11 Online Self-Help (UPK) Simulated environment:See It! Mode enables a user to learn by watching an animated demonstration of the steps for a task being performed in a simulated environment. All of the required activities, such as moving the mouse and entering data, are completed automatically.Try It! Mode enables a user to learn interactively in a simulated environment. The user is prompted for mouse clicks and/or keystrokes to complete the task.Know It? Mode is an assessment-type playback mode in which users are instructed to complete a particular task. Users do not receive step-by-step instructions for completing a task. (This mode is not used at this time.)
12 Online Self-Help (UPK) Live environment:Do It! Mode (available only when using the Internet Explorer browser) enables a user to learn interactively using live data. A user is presented with a small window on top of the live target application that displays each step for a particular task. As the user completes each step, he/she can click a button or use a hot-key combination to display the next step in the process. Within the Do It! window, a thumbnail graphic of the screen is available with a highlight indicating the area where the action should take place.This mode is recommended when help is needed while using e-Reimbursement to fill out an expense report or a travel authorization.
