Once you activate your course and share the course URL with your students, there are several methods they can use to gain access.

Student Access

  • Students can gain access by entering an access code or by purchasing access online. Access codes for LearningCurve can be found in new copies of a textbook or on access cards (which include access codes). Both can be ordered by and purchased from your school’s bookstore.
  • If students have a used book or chose not to purchase a textbook, they can purchase access directly from the LearningCurve site.
  • Finally, students can sign up for 21 days of temporary access while they decide which purchase option to take.

My students are having trouble getting into this course. How can I help them?

When students purchase access or register a student access code, they’ll be asked to select their course information (the same set of information you entered as your course information) from a set of drop-down menus. Make sure they are entering the correct course information.

If they continue to have problems, they can contact tech support (Higher Ed only).

A student registered into the wrong course. How can I switch them into the correct course?

If your student registered into the wrong course, he or she can switch into the correct course by selecting Join a different course from the drop-down menu in the header. They will be asked to select the institution’s state/province, enter the institution’s city and name, and select the appropriate academic term, instructor, and course from the corresponding drop-down menus.

How long will students have access to this product?

Students have access to LearningCurve for six months from the date when they purchased or entered an access code.
