Prescribed a Cengage text this teaching period?
If you have prescribed a Cengage resource for your course, you probably already have a number of digital tools available to you and your tutors, which could include PowerPoint lecture slides, Instructors’ Manual, downloadable artwork from the text, Test Bank with customisable questions for quizzes and assessments, mapping, activity sheets, additional cases, and more. You can add these to your campus Blackboard, Moodle, Canvas or other Learning Management System (LMS). If you need help to do this, please let your Cengage learning consultant know.
