In order to access FlatWorld Homework, you will need to have created a FlatWorld account and either purchased or redeemed a code for the book for your course. If you have not completed these steps, you can access the relevant documentation for assistance.
If you have already joined your homework course and are having issues opening your assignments, please visit our FlatWorld Troubleshooting article.
FlatWorld StandAlone Homework vs Integrated Homework
There are two options for your professor to use for FlatWorld Homework. StandAlone Homework is hosted through our website, whereas Integrated Homework is accessed through a Learning Management System such as Canvas, BlackBoard, Moodle, or D2L/BrightSpace.
If your professor is using StandAlone Homework, they will have provided you with a homework invitation link you will use to join the homework course. It will have been provided via email, posted on your course syllabus, or anywhere else they may host their course information.
Joining through an Invitation Link
Professors can provide you with a Homework Invitation Link that will take you directly to their course for you to join. Here is an example link:
Make sure you are logged into your FlatWorld Account before accessing the link. If you are not, you will be prompted to sign in. Clicking on such a link, or copy/pasting it into the URL will take you to the FlatWorld Homework Site and the option to join your course. Click Join your Course, and you will be able to access your assignments as soon as they are made available to you by your Instructor.
If you were not provided with a homework code or invitation link, your course may be hosted in an LMS, or Learning Management System. If your school uses Canvas, BlackBoard, Moodle, or D2L/BrightSpace, check your course there for any FlatWorld Assignments. If your homework is integrated, you will always access it through your LMS and not the FlatWorld Homework site.
You will still need to purchase or redeem a code for the book in order to access homework through your LMS.
I already purchased the book, but when I click on Join Course it says Book Not Accessible. What do I do?
If you know you have already purchased the book, or redeemed a code for access to a book, you may have purchased under your personal email vs your school email, or vice versa. Try to log into FlatWorld using your other email and password. If you still cannot locate your book and access the homework course, you can reach out to FlatWorld Customer Service.
I followed the instructions, but the course I am being shown is not correct. What do I do?
Please reach out to your Professor to confirm the code or link you have been provided is correct. If not, they can provide you with the new code or link if they have it.
How do I access my homework assignments in the future after I first log in?
We recommend that you bookmark any pages you will be visiting frequently, such as the Homework site. However, you can always access your Homework from your dashboard after signing into the main FlatWorld Site.
