What to Expect:

Step 1

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

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 Key and Secret and System Test URL.

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

Step 3: Configure and Test

From the email, follow the steps in the administrator guide to download, configure and test the Cengage Remote Plug-in.

Step 4

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 Brightspace Instructor Support Site where they can access product-specific documentation, tutorials and Getting Started materials for students. 

Pro Tip

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 Brightspace. Our quick training video shows how to incorporate this feature.
