If your Course uses a learning management system (Blackboard, Canvas, D2L, etc.), see Getting Started with Knewton for Students using an LMS.
Welcome from the Knerds at Knewton! You can watch our "Getting Started" video below.
We know your path to college success is unique. Boxing you in with everyone else just won’t work.
That’s why Knewton Alta takes a personalized approach to learning. It pinpoints exactly what you need to learn now, and exactly what you need to learn next. Knewton Alta supports and guides you, just like a 1:1 tutor.
