Some courses use Pearson MyLab and Mastering for instruction, practice, and quizzes. If you are taking a course that uses one of these, you will have purchased either a textbook with access code or you may have purchased only an access code. In either case, you should log into D2L as usual for further instructions from your instructor, located either in an announcement on the course home page or in the Content area. You may be provided with either a "course ID" or a link to the website for MyMath Lab. Please refer to the proper instructions below for each method. 


Course ID


If the instructor is providing a course id to students, typically in an announcement on the course home page, that means they are not using the Pearson/Brightspace integration with this course and you will need to do the following.
