New Releases for Cengage Unlimited

Coming Soon

Enhanced Navigation

Smartphones. Social Media. Digital distractions constantly challenge your students’ attention—but an organized learning environment and consistent navigation keep students focused and on task.

In Fall 2019, enhanced navigation is being added to all major Cengage platforms and the student dashboard, enabling students to easily access their Cengage courses and learning platforms—without leaving a single point of entry.

The new navigation menu helps students in LMS and non-LMS environments:

  • Quickly maneuver between MindTap, WebAssign, SAM and the Cengage student dashboard
  • Hide and unhide the sidebar with one click
  • Leverage responsive mobile design
  • Get timely tips for college success and career-readiness tutorials, text-agnostic Study Tools and more (Cengage Unlimited subscribers)
  • Connect quickly with our U.S.-based award-winning customer support

 

Students will be greeted with this message telling them how the enhanced navigation will help them.
