Online Classroom -
in Subjects CT1 - CT8 and CA1
The Online Classroom is an
exciting new approach to studying for the actuarial
exams. It acts as either a valuable add-on
to a face-to-face tutorial or a great alternative
to a tutorial, particularly if you're not based
in the UK or near a tutorial venue.
Please read our introduction
to the Online
Classroom and its key benefits.
At the heart of the Online
Classroom in each subject is a comprehensive,
easily-searched collection of over 100 tutorial
units. These are a mix of:
- teaching units, helping you to really get
to grips with the course material, and
- guided questions, enabling you to learn
the most efficient ways to answer questions
and avoid common exam pitfalls.

Online Classroom is to see it in action. You

Using ActEd’s Online Classrooms on an iPad
ActEd’s Online Classrooms do not function correctly when viewed on an iPad via a normal web-browser such as Safari. However, recently we have found that our Online Classrooms can be accessed using the Puffin Web Browser, which is available from the App store.
We have set up a post on our discussion forum to enable students to post feedback (positive or negative) about their experience of using Puffin to view Online Classrooms.
- We suggest trying the free version of Puffin before buying the full version. This will enable you to make sure that it works well for you.
- We have no control over the development of Puffin and there appear to be few alternatives to it for viewing Online Classrooms on an iPad so we may well be unable to fix any problems, should any arise in the future.
