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. Automatic gradebook synchronization facilitates a simpler, 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 for Your Initial Setup:
Step 1: Instructor Selects Cengage—Woohoo!
When your instructor requests to integrate a Cengage platform into your campus LMS, they'll work with their 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: Receive Email from Cengage
Once this request is submitted, you’ll receive an email containing the configuration parameters for your institution. This includes the School ID, Key and Secret.
If you haven’t received this information, reach out to the Learning Consultant for the discipline your instructor is teaching to confirm the request was submitted.
Step 3: Configure and Test
From the email, follow the steps in the administrator guide to configure and test the Cengage App. Don’t forget, we use a configuration URL. To test the installation, you will need to sign in with an instructor account.
Step 4: Communicate to Faculty
Once testing has been completed, Cengage will be notified and will deliver the course content to instructors who have adopted our solutions. Instructors will receive an email letting them know the content fulfillment is complete. It will also provide them with a Quick Guide for getting started with the course content in your LMS.
Step 5: Get Your Faculty Set Up
Direct instructors looking for additional support to the Blackboard Instructor Support Site where they can access product-specific documentation, tutorials and Getting Started materials for students.
Incorporate Cengage Unlimited into Course Design
Help instructors place a link to the Cengage Unlimited Student Dashboard into their course. This maintains a seamless experience for students who subscribe to Cengage Unlimited and ensures they have full access to all the Cengage resources available through their subscription from within Blackboard. Our quick training video shows how to incorporate this feature.
