When we first launched Coaching Actuaries, we had no idea how popular it would be for students preparing for their exams. But each year, we’ve grown at a tremendous rate. One reason is because we strive to create the best user experience possible. We don’t want you to struggle finding what you’re wanting (we think actuarial exams are hard enough as it is). So now, with over 1.5 million practice exams taken, we think it’s time for an upgrade.
Today we launched a brand new dashboard and user interface for Coaching Actuaries students. We’ve designed this new dashboard based on our customers feedback and our research. The goal is to improve your study experience.
See What’s New:
New Mobile-Friendly Dashboard and User Interface
Adapt Question Discussions on Review Page
Unified Learn/Practice Structure
New Study Interface for Video Lessons
Adjust Video Play Speed
Streamlined Discussion Forum
Throughout the conversion process, our biggest priority was making the transition to the new platform as seamless as possible for our users. This includes making sure all your account history, past exam data, and your Earned Level has been transferred to our new dashboard. However, you might have already noticed that some older features on our previous platform did not make the transition. The Leaderboard, for example, was not moved to our new dashboard (you can easily view your Earned Level when you go to Adapt). Additionally, Discussion Forum email notifications have ceased. You can see your forum notifications when you log in. Finally, the Coach Recommends feature is currently unavailable while we work on improving its functionality.
If you’re a current student that will start preparing for another exam soon, please note that student discounts are applied differently than they were before. On the new platform, you are able to use any email address and simply enter a student discount code during the checkout process. You’ll be prompted to verify your enrollment by uploading a picture of either your student ID or a copy of your student schedule that includes your name and semester. Once you’ve uploaded your verification, you’ll be able to check out and access your account while we review your information.
This upgrade is just the first step. With our new platform, we’ll be able to develop new features to help you study even more efficiently.
Thank you for your patience and understanding while we work to create the best possible experience for you and other actuarial students. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions.
