Join Us on the Journey to OER

Cengage is proud to introduce our general education course suite powered by Learning Objects, available Fall 2017.

Benefits for you:

Affordability and Time Savings

Affordability is at the core of our offering. These pre-populated courses use vetted OER content from OpenStax alongside developed content from Cengage, saving your institution precious time by having Cengage manage the curation and content upkeep.

Quality & Design

Course content is developed using instructional design principles, empowering your faculty to measure learning outcome mastery throughout the course.

Leverage the experience of our outcomes-based Services team to align content with your program goals. Deliver high quality content that meets ADA compliance standards, drives mastery with rich assessment, all delivered in a powerful digital learning environment. 

Consistent Learning Experience

View comprehensive dashboards that show how content aligns with specific learning outcomes and illustrates student progress toward mastery of outcomes.

Gain actionable insight into student progress, so you can instantly identify and communicate with struggling students.
