Hello and welcome to the third course and RPA specialization, UI automation and selectors. This course assumes that you have completed the first two courses of the specialization. It contains five modules explaining different methods and activities in studio used while interacting with the user interface of different applications, like Excel, Word, CRN, and websites. In the first two modules, you will learn about UI interactions and different input actions and methods. The next two modules explain containers and different recording types available in studio. The last module of the course describes selectors and studio. The course consists of the following learning assets. Video lessons, reading materials, practice exercises, and graded quizzes. Let's dive deeper into each type of learning assets and understanding how it should be used. Video lessons help you understand concepts and acquire the skills necessary to build the automation projects and studio. They are of two types, theory and demonstration. The theory videos explain the key concepts used to build automation projects. You are advised to pause and replay them for a detailed and clear understanding of the concepts. The demonstration videos demonstrate the practical application of the concepts explained in the theory videos and provide a step-by-step guide on using different features of studio used to build automation projects. You are encouraged to re-create the steps explained in the video to understand the concept presented entirely. Practicing these concepts will enhance your learning and improve your understanding of studios interface and functionality. It is highly recommended to keep the studio open so that the features, activities, or components discussed in the video can be explored in parallel. The next asset is reading materials, which provide additional information on the concepts and topics discussed in the video lessons. They often contain links to UiPath documentation web portal as well. It is recommended that you study the reading materials thoroughly to develop a deeper understanding of the concepts. These materials are accompanied by PDF documents which can be easily downloaded and saved for future reference. Now, let's talk about practice exercises. The practice exercises of the course help you practice concepts learned in the video lessons. Each practice exercise is accompanied by a solution document. The solution document contains the process, overview, and step-by-step instructions, which incrementally reveal the solution and make it easier for you to create the workflows. It is recommended that you try and practice the exercises independently before taking assistance from the solution document. At the end of the course, you will encounter a graded quiz. It helps you assess your understanding of the course. It is recommended that you revise the course before attempting it. So far, we have covered all the learning assets.
