Set up the Direct integration for Canvas

Updated 18 Dec 2023

Learn how to work with a Direct integration in a Canvas course. Depending on how the Canvas course is set up and your permissions, you might refer to one or more guides below.

If there's a link for the MyLab and Mastering or Access Pearson integration in the left navigation, remove or hide it from students. Otherwise, students might select the link and be asked to pay for access to MyLab and Mastering.

Copy a Canvas course with a Direct integration

Use this guide if you have access to a Canvas course that already includes Direct integration links. This guide covers copying Direct integration links between Canvas courses and making a copy of integrated MyLab or Mastering content.

Use instructor self service

Use the Instructor Self Service link to manage grade sync, add or restore Direct integration links, and view course details.

If your institution uses opt-in or opt-out managed by Pearson, you can set the start date for your MyLab or Mastering content. If your institution uses anonymization, you can view the course roster.

Instructor self service guide

Get students started

When students use Direct integration links, they select a link and accept the license agreement and privacy policy. Students will then appear in your MyLab and Mastering gradebook and roster.

Students access Direct integration links from modules and not from the left navigation.
