Get started with Pearson MyLab and Mastering and Pearson MyLabsPlus in Canvas

On this page:


UITS recommends instructors teaching in Canvas at Indiana University use IU eTexts to adopt texts and digital learning tools (DLT) materials from Pearson, McGraw-Hill, Macmillan, Cengage, or Wiley Publishers. In addition to significant discounts off list prices, benefits of using IU eTexts include streamlined integration into Canvas, single sign-on for students (meaning no access codes), and local technical support for faculty and students via the Support Center and IU eTexts Service Catalog.

Pearson MyLab & Mastering

Pearson MyLab & Mastering is an interactive educational system designed to accompany textbooks published by Pearson Education. When this tool is added to a Canvas course, instructors and their students can use Pearson's interactive instructional materials, including homework, quizzes, and multimedia tutorials. Grades earned in MyLab & Mastering quizzes and homework assignments can be synced to the Canvas Gradebook. For more about this service, see Pearson MyLab & Mastering.

Pearson MyLabsPlus

Pearson MyLabsPlus enables instructors to manage their Pearson MyLab & Mastering courses from one place. After adding the MyLabsPlus tool to Canvas Modules, instructors and students can access their course and its content directly from Canvas.
