UiPath Action Center - Feedback Space

We want to hear your feedback‌.
If you have any ideas, issues or improvement suggestions relating to the UiPath Action Center course, please feel free to add them in this thread.

Perhaps I am missing something such as taking courses out of order, but as it stands the UiPath Academy has been a frustrating experience. This will be the feedback I leave under the surveys.

There needs to be more interactivity.

The good: The information is clear, well defined, structured in a logical manner

The (very) bad: It’s just a bunch of information. Taking these courses is the equivalent of drinking from a firehose. You’re just throwing a bunch of terms, and definitions at the user without giving them the ability to do anything. There needs to be a workshop within the web interface (not by downloading Studio X separately for just for the introduction) where a user is able to perform the tasks that are part of the course. The terms can then be defined while the user is working. The way things are setup I read for a few minutes, then watch the instructor click through a video and then answer some questions, yet if this is going to be the program I’m working with, these courses will be of very little practical use due to the nuance that comes with using any GUI.

To make an analogy, if you want to teach someone to be a carpenter you don’t first lecture them for hours about different wood types, metallurgy, and show them samples of rock that go into concrete. You give them a hammer and a nail, and show them how to hit the nail into the wood. You let them use a couple of different nails and then tell them the difference. These courses need to be structured so that people are able make the connection between information and implementation. As it is (unless I am missing something) there is currently a huge disconnect here.

The course is informative, clear with product motive. The multiple choice is fine, this is good in terms of business people, but as in developer perspective this course needs to be more practical. However, as a developer, I would deeply love to do practical actions with a problem statement end to end flow of how business process created first which reads creates items in action center then how it resumes and completes the rest of process.
This is my understanding so far
ie. dispatcher A creates queue items in Q1, performer fetches transaction item from Q1, first item needs human validation so item created in action center, and this transaction is in-progress. Now this VM/Robot is kept hold. what happens to the rest transaction items. will they be processed only when the current item is done?

Hi UIpath,

It gives just an overview of Action Centre. Why can’t some example scenarios be included and in between paused for a quiz and then continue…which will make learning interesting…

Multiple choice questions are good but some practical scenario based video quiz can also be included.
