The Education Perfect + Brightspace Integration Process

Get in touch with us

To get started, send us an email on support@educationperfect.com letting us know you'd like to set up an integration with Brightspace.

Match existing users to their BrightSpace accounts

If your students have already been using Education Perfect without a Brightspace integration, their EP accounts will need to be linked to the unique identifier Brightspace uses to confirm their identity. This enables any work that students do on Education Perfect in Brightspace to be stored against their account. Often this is the user's school email address, but it can differ from school to school - the information in the test page above helps us to work out exactly what to use. 

If we already have the unique identifier associated with teachers' and students' accounts, for example because it's their email addresses, we'll match up everyone we can on your behalf. We will then send you a list of anyone we couldn't match. Once you send us the details for those people, we'll update them as well. 

Please note that until we have completed this step users will get an error if they attempt to access Education Perfect content embedded within Canvas.
