How LearnSmart Works

We all know courses get more difficult as the semester progresses. Topics build on each other, and it’s hard to know what topics you really know. LearnSmart’s adaptive technology uncovers which core concepts you don’t fully understand, and helps you master them by creating a learning plan JUST FOR YOU!

LearnSmart’s interactive questions are also designed to help you remember what you learn throughout the semester. And just in case, LearnSmart figures out which concepts you are most likely to forget and sends you a reminder to brush up. Now you’ll never fall behind.

Best of all, studies show that LearnSmart can help you improve your course work by a full letter grade.
