Starting in Spring 2021, City Tech is moving our WeBWorK hosting to a third party vendor, Rederly. While the WeBWorK problems and problem sets will remain the same, the Rederly system is a little different from the traditional WeBWorK system that you are used to.
The good news is that the differences are almost all positive – an easier, more intuitive user interface, better tools for account management, higher capacity and better protected against system outages.
However, instructors will also have slightly different responsibilities on Rederly than you did on the old system. Before the semester begins, you will need to create an account, set up your course, and provide a “registration” link to all of your students so they can join your course. Detailed instructions for carrying out these steps, as well as more general information about Help and Tutorials, appear below.

Getting Started on Rederly
1. Create an account on Rederly
Starting January 19th, 2021, you can create an account at app.rederly.com by using your citytech faculty email. Select “Register” and enter your name, citytech email and a password of your choice.
The system will generate a confirmation email – complete your registration by clicking the link in the email.
2. Set up Your Course
Once you are logged in to Rederly, click the blue “Create Course” button to get started.
Select the correct Model Course from the list that appears. After you select it, you will have a chance to enter some basic information including your section number.
3. Invite your students
Your students will also need to create an account on Rederly. The good news is that students will continue to use the same account for all WeBWorK classes! Once a student has created an account, they will need to click on a special enrollment link (which you will provide to them) in order to join your section.
To find the enrollment link for your course, log in to Rederly and select your course. Choose the “Enrollment” option (the third tab), and you will see the Enrollment Link near the top of the page. Copy this link and provide it to your students (for example, you can post it to your class website on Blackboard or the OpenLab).
