How do you use html helpers with knockout.js

This is easy:
@Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.CourseId, new { data_bind = "value: CourseId" })

Where:
•value: CourseId indicates that you are binding the value property of the input control with the CourseId property from your model and your script model

The result is:
<input  data-bind="value: CourseId" 
         data-val="true" 
  data-val-number="The field CourseId must be a number." 
data-val-required="The CourseId field is required." 
               id="CourseId" 
             name="CourseId" 
             type="text" 
            value="12" 
/>
