Advanced Integration for Brightspace

Advanced integration provides additional features, including score syncing to Brightspace®.

Important Because of changes in the Brightspace LTI implementation, advanced integration is not recommended.


Advanced integration provides the following features in addition to those of the basic integration:

  • You can add your WebAssign assignments to Brightspace.
  • Your students access WebAssign assignments via the corresponding Brightspace activities.
  • Your students' scores on WebAssign assignments are synced back to the corresponding Brightspace activities.

Before You Begin

Set up integration at the start of the term, and only for WebAssign course sections with no enrolled students.

Important Turn off self-enrollment for your WebAssign course. Do not link an LMS course to an existing WebAssign course if:
  • students are already enrolled
  • you gave students a class key to self-enroll
