Pearson/D2L updates for 2023-24

Using Pearson links in D2L?

The Pearson integration within D2L Brightspace has been upgraded from its previous version (known as LTI 1.1) to the new version (known as LTI 1.3.)  Both versions are working within D2L as of now, however, only the LTI 1.3 version will work as of December 20, 2023.

At the end of 2023, the legacy 1.1 integration will be removed from D2L and instructors will need to update their Pearson links to 1.3 for their Spring 2024 courses and future courses by following the directions on the attached document.  


The LTI 1.3 version can be found in the "Existing Activities" menu of a D2L module:

  1. Within the Content tool of your Brightspace course, click Existing Activities > External Learning Tools.
  2. Click Pearson.
