Getting Started with Learning Catalytics (Buy Online)
This walkthrough will guide you through the process of purchasing your Learning Catalytics access and joining your first Learning Catalytics Session. This process is only for students taking courses on the Medford campus. Students in the Medical, Dental, and Veterinary schools have a different registration process.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN: Check whether you already have Learning Catalytics access
Have you purchased access to Pearson MyLab or Mastering product that included an eText within the last year? In that case you may already have access to Learning Catalytics. Go to https://learningcatalytics.com/ and try logging in with your MyLab or Mastering login. If you don't remember your password, click Forgot your password?. If you can log in to Learning Catalytics, click on your username to see your account expiration date and make sure your access will last through the semester. Click here to go to Step 11 for more information.
Go to Do I already have access to Learning Catalytics? for more information.
1. Go to the Learning Catalytics registration page
To register go to: https://learningcatalytics.com/users/sign_up
2. Click "I am a student"
3. Click "Purchase 6 months of access ($12)" or "Purchase 12 months of access ($20)"
If you think you'll use Learning Catalytics in your classes next semester, select the 12-month option. Otherwise, buy the 6-month option.
4. Click "I Accept" for the license agreement
5. Select "Yes" if you already have an existing Pearson account
Enter your username and password in the fields provided. If you don't know your username or password click "Forgot your Login Name or Password?".
If you forgot your username or password, click "Forgot your Login Name or Password?"
Enter your username OR email address to have your password emailed to you.
6. Select "No" to create a new account
Use your Tufts email address as your "Login Name". That will make it easier to remember and to get help if you have trouble accessing your account.
7. Confirm or enter your personal information and school location
If you have an existing Pearson account, these fields will already be filled in; you can update them if you want. We recommend that you use your Tufts email address here as well. The zip code of Tufts University is 02155.
8. Enter your payment and billing information
You will confirm your purchase and payment on the next screen.
9. Review the confirmation page and check your inbox for the confirmation email
The confirmation page indicates that the transaction is complete and your account was created. You will also receive an email confirmation. Please save the email in a place you can find it again and/or print out the confirmation page for safekeeping. The information on these pages (like the account and order ID) will be helpful if you have any issues accessing your account.
10. Sign in to Learning Catalytics to test your account
Go to https://learningcatalytics.com/ and click Sign In. Enter the username and password you just created.
11. Click on your account name to check your expiration date
Click on your user name in the upper right hand corner to see the account page which lists your expiration date. Since you just paid for access your date should be 6 or 12 months from the current date. However, it's important to check your expiration date at the beginning of each semester to ensure that your access will last through the semester.
12. Join the test session provided by your instructor (if any)
Your instructor may have provided a test session for you to join and confirm that you can access Learning Catalytics. Paste that session ID into the "join a session" field and click "Join". Follow any instructions in that session.
