Pearson MyLab Setup

Getting Your Course Set Up with MyLabs

  1. Optional Setup Step - Create a Sandbox for Content Only
    ​This sandbox would act as a master course template, since copying sections that have been integrated with Pearson MyLabs is not recommended.
  2. Send an email to VTAC@lonestar.edu or start a chat using the VTAC-Live Chat tool.
    • Include a list of the courses, complete with section numbers and terms, in which you wish to use MyLabs.
  3. Copy your sandbox content into your Brightspace course.
