Integrate an Existing MindTap Course With Moodle

If you already created the MindTap course you want to integrate with Moodle™ — and no students are enrolled — integrate your existing course.

Note Course templates, courses with student enrollments, and courses that are already linked to an LMS can't be linked.
  1. Open your Moodle course.
  2. Click actions menu > Turn editing on.
  3. Click Add an activity or resource.
  4. Select the Cengage tool and click Add.

    The Cengage tool is created and named by your Moodle administrator.

    If a Cengage tool is not listed:

    1. Select External tool and click Add.
    2. Under General > Preconfigured tool, select the Cengage tool.
  5. Under General, click Select content.
    Note The Activity Name and Tool URL are set automatically after selecting the content.
  6. If prompted, sign in to your Cengage instructor account to link your Moodle and Cengage accounts.
  7. Click Add Homework Platform.
  8. Select the textbook or product you want to use from the available course content.
    • To only see MindTap results, click Filter Results and set Filter By to MindTap.
  9. Select Link to an existing course or section.

    Your unlinked courses and course sections with no student enrollments for the selected title are listed.

  10. Select the course or section you want to link and click Continue.
  11. If prompted, select whether to synchronize the overall course score or individual activity scores to the Moodle gradebook.

    This option is not available for all courses.

    Note Category scores can not be synced to Moodle.
    Note In Moodle, each activity link must be added individually. This process can be time-consuming if you have many assignments and courses.

    If you do not need to sync individual activity scores to Moodle, consider using the MindTap gradebook to calculate an overall course score for all MindTap activities and syncing that course score to Moodle instead.

    1. Click Continue to confirm your choice.

    A link to the integrated MindTap course is added to your Moodle course.

  12. Save your changes at the bottom of the page.

    Click either Save and return to course or Save and display.

  13. Click the link to your MindTap course.

    If prompted, read and accept the service agreement.
