Moodle 3: Activities & Resources: Pearson MyLab & Mastering Link Settings

Pearson offers integration between Moodle and its MyLab & Mastering products. This integration provides the ability for the instructor and students to log in to Moodle and click a link from the Moodle course to access their MyLab & Mastering experience.

To create the connection to MyLab & Mastering products, instructors will need to add the Pearson block to the course. This will automatically create a link in the top section of the course. Once the link has been added, instructors will be able to configure the textbook information.

Note: Instructors should NEVER delete the Pearson block or the MyLab & Mastering Tools link from their course, as it will cause issues. If an instructor is experiencing issues with Pearson after adding it to the course, please do not delete it. Instead, contact your Pearson representative. If you delete the Pearson block, please contact the FTC.

For instructions on adding the Pearson block, see Moodle 3: Blocks: Pearson MyLab & Mastering Tool.

By default, students can manually mark Pearson as complete, but an instructor can change this to be required. If required, the students can be marked complete by viewing the activity, receiving a grade.

NOTE: This completion will NOT be accurate if the Pearson link contains multiple activities.
