Get Your Course Set Up Your Way.

Tips for Customizing Your Course:

  • Leverage “Getting Started” Assignments
    Use the Getting Started assignment(s), where available, in your digital product. It’s a low-risk way to teach students how to complete assignments.
  • Set Homework Grades at 20%
    Why 20%? Our research shows that counting a digital solution as 20% of the final grade improves student engagement and performance.
  • Make Set-Up Easy for Students
    Dedicate a portion of your first or second class to showing students how to log in to their digital product. Your Cengage Learning Consultant can even conduct an in-class demo.
  • Lead Class Discussion
    Have an in-class discussion about the digital homework before the first assignment is due. Walk through a sample assignment to make sure your students are comfortable.
