I am teaching using the text Personal Stress Management from Surviving to Thriving. Are there power points available and where are they located?
Powerpoint slides are available under Instructor resources. If you don't see this under your Cengage account, you can reach out to your Cengage rep. to add it to your account. They may also be able to email you the slides, if needed. I had an issue with downloading the powerpoint slides once for my course and had the rep. email me a set.
Scroll down towards the bottom of the page to info about all instructor resources available for this text - slides, instructor's manual, test banks, etc.
Hope this helps.
If these are videos related to a particular book that has either CengageNOW or MindTap (or some other online platform), they are typically located under "Study tools" that can be accessed by both the instructor and students. Some of these videos also show problems being solved (for quantitative courses). If the videos are part of the course materials (like powerpoint slides), they can be found under "Instructor resources". If you cannot still find them, please contact your Cengage representative or Cengage technical support to help you.
Hope this helps.
If you are using MindTap and do not connect to a learning management system, login to your Cengage account.
Click on the link under your desired class for "Manage Course."
If you click on the "Course Key" icon that I have marked, you will get the numerical/alphabetical key combination. If you click the icon to the right entitled "Course Link Instructions," a handy printout is generated that you can distribute to your students that already has instructions ready to go.
Hope this answers your question, but let us know if we can help further.
This system of yours is a nightmare.
I need a desk copy for Shimko's International Relation 5th Ed.
What a chore for such a simple task!!!!
I use folders for organizing my class in MindTap, and I also add names and dates to the folders to help my students stay organized in this way:
Week One: Getting Started (June 1 - 7)
Week Two: Critical Thinking (June 8 - 14)
Week Three: Research Skills (June 15 - 21)
As @Jenny_Billings shared, the default placement for a new folder is always at the bottom of the learning path. You will have to change the "location" and "order" options to get the folder where you want it. Here's a great video that walks you through doing so:
Hope this helps!
Sometimes it can take up to a week to get verified to obtain a Cengage instructor account. They need to know that you are a faculty member in order to provide you access to instructor manuals, testbanks, homework solutions, etc. Now for this, you need to register with your school email address (.edu). It may also help to share with them a link to your school webpage (official) that can be easily and quickly verified.
If it has been a week, you can contact Cengage directly or or your rep. to find out the status. Hope this helps.
Hello there. On MindTap activities, and specifically Mastery Training, is there a way to disable the "due date" so students can always see the percentage towards goal regardless of when they can work on the mastery training activity?
I'm using the comprehensive text, along with CengageNow, and have never offered an on-line class. I'm up for any suggestions.
While I cannot speak to the text/MindTap you are using, I can speak to using Hybrid as your method of delivery. In fact, I did a webinar on how to differentiate between delivery methods (from February 2018). You are welcome to view and use that!
If you have HY-specific questions, I'm happy to assist with those.
Is it possible for me to make a quiz that randomly selects 20 out of 30 questions from a bank, allows multiple attempts and reshuffles each time?
Okay it's easy. Below is a video that shows you how. Just fast forward to the 7 minute mark and it will show you how to do it. If this doesn't work let us know. Just in case the video link is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CrqLiFtwERI&t=182s

Cengage also has a TechCheck dashboard, so if you have questions about whether WebAssign has gone offline for any time, you can check it here: https://techcheck.cengage.com/. For today (May 17), there have been no issues, and the service has been fully operational.
