Welcome to the Troy University CengageNOW on Blackboard Service & Training Site
Student Access Codes

About Student Access Codes:

When using CengageNOW on Blackboard, students will be required enter a student access code the first tme they access the Course Documents area of your course. This is where the CengageNOW links and content are placed for students after you have installed your course cartridge. Access codes are provided in a bundle with the new textbook required for purchase for your course and available through MBS direct. Students that do not purchase the required materials from MBS will be required to purchase an access code separately from the bookstore or Cengage. It is important to communicate this requirement to your students in your syllabus reinforcing that their best value is the required bundle.

 

Below is a sample of a message you may want to place in your syllabus:

There is a required textbook bundle for this course which should be purchased through MBS direct. This bundle includes a customized version of the required textbook for Troy University as well as an access code package for CengageNOW on Blackboard. CengageNOW includes text specific content and resources which you will be able to access directly through your Blackboard course site. This access code is provided at no additional cost with your textbook bundle. Students that do not purchase the required materials from MBS will be required to purchase an access code separately from the bookstore or Cengage. If you do need to purchase the access code separately please visit the following URLs: <insert URL from below>.

 

Access Code Sites:

For those students who do not purchase the required textbook bundle and require an access code, we have created ‘Buy Sites’ for each course. We recommend posting the link to the access code ‘Buy Site’ in your syllabus as well as announcement in your course.
