Brightspace Integration

If available, instructors and students can access WebAssign assignments from Brightspace®. Brightspace is also known as D2L® or Desire2Learn®.

To request Brightspace integration, open a support case.

Note: Always follow your institution’s IT guidelines for requesting new external tools.

Basic integration between Brightspace and WebAssign provides automatic rostering of students and single sign-on to WebAssign from Brightspace:

  • Students access WebAssign directly from Brightspace and do not need to log in to WebAssign separately.
  • When a student accesses WebAssign the first time, she can either create a new WebAssign user account or link to her existing account.
  • When a student accesses WebAssign for the first time, she is automatically added to your WebAssign class roster.
Note:
  • Integration does not enable single sign-on to Brightspace from WebAssign.
  • Students who drop the Brightspace section are not dropped from the WebAssign section.
  • Students who transfer out of the Brightspace section are not dropped from the WebAssign section.
