New Cengage Product Embeds Course Materials into Learning Management System

Ed tech company Cengage has launched a new product that integrates digital course materials into an institution's learning management system. Cengage Infuse allows instructors to set up and manage their courses, including e-textbooks, assessments, auto-graded content and more, all within the LMS, while students can access all of their assignments and course materials in one place.   

"We've heard from many instructors that they want to leverage the power that digital tools can offer but they really only want to work within their LMS," explained Fernando Bleichmar, executive vice president and general manager for U.S. Higher Education at Cengage Group, in a statement. "With Cengage Infuse they can do that. They can set up their course right from their LMS, they never have to link out to material and, importantly, students never have to leave the LMS. Instructors can set up their course in just 10 minutes. It's a huge timesaver, something we know faculty need right now."

Cengage Infuse is available for seven course areas — U.S. History, Introductory Psychology, Criminal Justice, Principles of Marketing, American Government, Texas Politics and Business Law — and works with Canvas, Blackboard and Brightspace learning management systems. It's included with a Cengage Unlimited subscription, or can be purchased as a standalone product for an average price of $65 per semester. For more information, visit the Cengage site.
