Workflow for new Cengage Adoptions:

  1. SME, PC's go into their Cengage Account, add the book/resource to the bookshelf and build out the associate MindTap course
    NOTE: Cengage account setup instructions are attached to this article. IMPORTANT: the person creating the Cengage digital content must use their cccs.edu email address and have it associate to CCCOnline institution. If the SME or PC need a Cengage account associated to their CCCS.edu email, please submit a ProfHelp ticket.
  2. SME or PC need to retrieve the course key or title of Cengage Course created on their Instructor Resource Center and submit a ProfHelp ticket with the course key and list of digital asset deep links that need added to the D2L DEV shell.
  3. AT passes that course key onto Cengage so they can add customized course to the Cengage CCCO Master Account 
    AND requests that the new etext & MindTap edition be added to CCCO's account for SSO access.
  4. Once the course is in the Master account, Cengage will send back the Master course key to be used and placed in the Notes for Instructors Module in the D2L DEV shell course.

 eText only courses will use the VitalSource bookshelf.
