Pearson MyLab or Mastering Integrating with Brighspace

Pearson MyLab and Mastering can integrate with your Brightspace course. Integrating these tools will enable your students to complete the Pearson assignments from the Brightspace course as well as allow instructors to pull grades from Pearson into Brightspace. Faculty can choose the depth of integration to include content, learning activities, and/or grades.

Note if you are using a Coordinator course within Pearson, you must enable the Access Pearson integration with Brightspace. Otherwise, when using Pearson’s Coordinator course with corresponding sections, you will not be able to integrate MyLab & Mastering with Canvas.

Tips for Students

Some details for helping people get the Pearson integration working in Brightspace:

  • Pearson software will not work in Safari and it seems to be working best in Chrome or Firefox.

  • Users must allow pop-up windows in order to use the Pearson software through Brightspace. 

    • When someone clicks on "MyLab & Mastering" in the Brightspace course navigation menu with pop-ups blocked, an icon and brief notice will appear in the address bar; click that icon/notice to allow pop-up windows.

  • Learners must go through Brightspace . If they go through Pearson directly they will be asked for a Course ID, which is not necessary. If they go through Brightspace they should be able to get in with their Access Code.
