Online Review Tools to Help You Stay at Your Peak!

The live-online ACT Summer Institute includes online tools to help you maintain your skills until test day!

Weekly online office hours provide a convenient way for you to get individualized help with specific questions or concerns that you may have. Online office hours are free-form meetings open to all participants from the ACT Summer Institutes. Instructors will be available to answer any questions that you might have. The sessions are “drop-in” and are student-directed, so there will not be a planned presentation for each session. Instead, our instructors will answer questions and work through problems in the order that they are received.

In addition, you will have access to an online instructor-monitored question forum and to recordings of an expert instructor explaining and reviewing all the class modules. Access to the online resources will continue until the end of the calendar year, so you will have extended support as you complete your preparation independently.

Live-online Office Hours System Requirements:  The live-online ACT office hours use a free Adobe Connect browser plug-in. The only requirements are high-speed internet access and speakers or headphones.
