FAQ

 

Can I buy an individual licence and share with my colleagues?

No. The individual licence is for one tutor to use with their own students. We have provided this option for those tutors whose organisations are unable to buy a licence or who work independently. As a small business, we encourage people to use the materials fairly. 

Why are the materials mainly paperbased?

There are many online options for study out there already so we wanted to do something different. We recognise that many students prefer having something they can write on and take away with them and realise that not everyone has access to a computer for the duration of their studies.  

Can I download and save the materials?

Yes. As long as you only use them according to the terms of your licence. We encourage you to check for updates regularly. 

When will new materials be added?

There will be at least one new resource added every month. Resources will also be updated to ensure they are current. 

How often do I pay?

You are buying an annual subscription. The subscription will automatically renew every year unless cancelled, so you won’t need to remember to renew it yourself.  

I'm a student. Are the resources suitable for me?

Yes. You will be able to use the guides, videos and industry specific materials without a tutor if necessary. The activities are designed for small groups, but you will still find some of them useful such as the quizzes. 

Are answers included?

Yes. Every resource has an answer sheet containing detailed explanations of how to work out each question. This makes them suitable for students to use to self-mark where necessary.
