Using Lyryx with OpenStax Accounting

Lyryx and OpenStax hosted an informative webinar showcasing our low-cost online homework system and how it can be used in conjunction with OpenStax’s free accounting textbooks.

The webinar featured information about how the online homework helps students master the material, as opposed to simply assessing the student’s competency. We illustrate how the system utilizes intelligent grading to carefully analyze each answer and deliver immediate personalized formative feedback. We also showcase that each question is truly randomized in a way that encourages learning by leading students to rethink a given problem multiple times.
