Cengage Learning is designed to seamlessly integrate with your institution's Learning Management System.
The use of third-party integrations in courses is at the discretion of the instructor with the understanding that many of these of these tools have support and documentation provided by their publisher, not RIT's Academic Technology Support. Most third-party integrations are not actively monitored RIT's Academic Technology Support and may be subject to unexpected changes or service interruptions from their publishers. Please refer to the documentation below for information specific to this integration.
Cengage has many products. If you have questions regarding which products can take advantage of this integration you will need to contact your Cengage representative.

Per the vendor's documentation, once the Links are added to the course the instructor must launch the course first to setup the course name and section information.
No students will be able to access the course until this process is complete. Please make sure to follow the vendor's documentation thoroughly.
This only needs to be completed in a course once at the start of each semester.
