What is Edfinity?
Edfinity is a FREE, NSF-funded homework system that runs on any mobile device or laptop.

How does Edfinity differ from WeBWorK?
Edfinity is a full-featured homework system that includes course management, student and educator metrics, a powerful graphical problem editor, search and discovery, sharing and collaboration, and more. Edfinity works seamlessly with WeBWorK, allowing you to use any WeBWorK problem. Edfinity requires no installation, and provides an intuitive and modern interface that makes it very easy to customize your online courses.

What kind of problems and courses are readily available in Edfinity?
A large number of mature, collegiate mathematics courses in active use have been contributed by various colleges to the Edfinity catalog, and are readily available with several more coming available soon. We offer a large library of problems used in past academic competitions such as AMC 8 and AMC 10/12. Additionally, the entire WeBWorK Open Public Library (OPL), a collection of over 35,000 problems spanning a wide range of math and science subjects, is available to browse and use.

How much does Edfinity cost?
Edfinity, in compliance with Creative Commons non-commercial licensing of the WeBWorK OPL and National Science Foundation (NSF) IUSE guidelines, currently offers free access to WeBWorK OPL problems/courses. In the future, with disclosure to and with full encouragement of the NSF, Edfinity anticipates charging a very modest platform fee for sustainability (similar to the MAA's hosting services for WeBWorK). Additionally, Edfinity is actively pursuing efforts to support OPL growth an maintenance through federal awards and other sources.

How do I get started?
Getting started is easy. Choose a course, customize it, and invite students to join.

I am an existing WeBWorK user and would like to import my course into Edfinity.
If you have an existing WeBWorK course you would like to import, contact us and we will help you with the initial setup. We will need your problem set definition files along with any custom problem definition files if you are using problems outside of the OPL.
