Get started

Let’s walk through the Cengage Building Block installation process and steps for enabling it on your campus.

You can download and install the Cengage Building Block, at no cost.

Before configuring, you’ll need to reach out to your Cengage representative to request the Cengage content you want deployed to your Blackboard instance. Once the request is submitted, you’ll receive an email for administrators with information needed to configure the Cengage Building Block on your site.

After the building block has been installed and configured, faculty can begin adding Cengage content to their Blackboard Learn courses through the Content Market under the Partner Content menu in any course content area.

Visit the Cengage LMS Support page for more details on the deployment process, administrator guides, and training resources for instructors.

Files, release notes, and admin guides are available on Behind the Blackboard.
