Our method for pairing your McGraw Hill Connect & Cengage course to your Blackboard shell has been recently updated. Instead of the traditional building block, we have transitioned to using the updated method of LTI. Starting from Winter 2023 and continuing into Spring 2024, you must use the LTI method of pairing your course and adding content .

McGraw Hill Connect:

Click on the below guide "CCSU McGraw Hill Connect LTIA" to learn how to pair your McGraw Hill content to your Bb course shell. 

In addition, during the break between the fall and winter sessions (week of December 18, 2023), we will be running a migration process to move all older content from the old integration to the new.  During mid-November, we will send more information on the migration process and what it entails for you.
