Access Smarthinking

There are three different ways you can access Smarthinking.

  • Log on and go into any course in Canvas.
  • If you are taking a math class and your professor uses MyMathLab or MyStatLab, you can contact Smarthinking’s math tutors by logging in to MyMathLab or MyStatLab.  Click on your course, then click on a homework assignment.  Next, click on a specific exercise.  On the right side of the screen, click on the “Connect to a Tutor” button. 
  • If your professors do not use Canvas, MyMathlab, or MyStatLab, you can still access Smarthinking.  Open a new browser window and log in at MYBRCC. Click “Canvas” (If you skip clicking “Canvas,” you will get an error message later on).  Then find and click the "BRCC Smarthinking Self-enroll" link.  A webpage will ask you to self-enroll in a course called BRCC Online Tutoring.  Click “Submit.” 

    After completing this process, you will be able to log in to Canvas and go into a course called BRCC Online Tutoring.  This will take you to Smarthinking.
