Cengage and Blackboard: better together

Cengage and Blackboard have partnered to offer LMS Integration with our premier digital solutions to power a more seamless learning experience. Single sign on, gradebook synchronization and deep linking learning content creates a more intuitive user experience for instructors and students using Blackboard. Let’s walk through the Cengage integration installation process and steps for enabling it on your campus.

What to expect:

Step 1

Step 1: Instructor Selects Cengage

When an instructor at your institution requests to integrate a Cengage platform into your campus LMS, they'll work with their Cengage Account Executive or Learning Consultant who will submit a request to deploy the course content to your institution. The request process ensures we have all the information we need to set up the integration and deploy the right content.

Step 2

Step 2: Receive Our Email

Once this request is submitted, you’ll receive an email containing the configuration parameters for your institution.

If you haven’t received this information, reach out to the Account Executive or Learning Consultant for your instructor to confirm the request was submitted.
