LMS Integration

Cengage offers a Canvas integration, which allows users to access Cengage resources directly from their Canvas course. The integration also offers the option to have both systems, Canvas and Cengage, synchronize grades automatically, so that the Canvas gradebook gets updated when students complete assignments within Cengage.

There are two major platforms that integrate within Canvas and are used by UNF instructors, they are: MindTap and WebAssign.

Cengage has already been whitelisted by UNF and is installed in Canvas. Faculty can enable the Cengage feature by clicking on Settings > Navigation within their Canvas Course. All Cengage users must have an account to access the material.
