ACT-R 6.0 is not the current version of the ACT-R system. It was last updated on December 22, 2014.
The current ACT-R software is available from the Software page.
The source code zip file contains all the Lisp source code as well as the tutorial, reference manuals, and the ACT-R Environment GUI.
See the QuickStart.txt file for startup instructions (that file is also included in the docs directory of the distribution).
The standalone version of the software runs ACT-R 6.0 without the need to have a separate Lisp application installed.
Installation and running instructions can be found in the included Readme files because they differ by version.
There is a version of the ACT-R Environment application for ACT-R 6.0 which can be run on Android devices. The instructions for installing and using it are available in this file and here is a link to the application itself.
This is being made available as a test and feedback is welcome. To answer the first question most people ask, there isn’t an iOS version because there is not a version of Tcl/Tk which runs under iOS.
Tutorial Units and Teaching Materials
The unit texts can be downloaded separately, but are already included in the software distributions above.
A set of slides for use with the tutorial written by Bill Kennedy are available here.
The manuals for the ACT-R 6.0 software are included in the docs directory of the software distributions and also available here:
