WebAssign

Moodle Integration

If available, you and your students can access WebAssign assignments from Moodle™.

Note Advanced LMS integration is not available for Moodle.

Features

Basic integration between Moodle and WebAssign provides automatic rostering of students and single sign-on:

  • Students can open WebAssign from Moodle without signing in to WebAssign separately.
  • The first time each student opens WebAssign from Moodle, they are added to your WebAssign class roster.
Note
  • Students can't open Moodle from WebAssign.
  • Students who drop the Moodle section are not dropped from the WebAssign section.
  • Students who transfer out of the Moodle section are not dropped from the WebAssign section.

New and Old Integrations

Starting in spring 2021, many schools use a new method to integrate WebAssign with their LMS. With the new method:

  • Integration starts in your LMS course, not in WebAssign.
  • For single-section courses, you can create your WebAssign course automatically as part of integration.
  • For multi-section courses, you should create your course sections first in WebAssign and then integrate them from your LMS.

Other schools will continue to use the old integration method. With the old method:

  • Integration starts in your WebAssign course.
  • You must create your WebAssign courses manually and then integrate them with your LMS from the WebAssign LMS Integration tab.
Note The new integration method is only available for Cengage products. Courses using an eBook from another publisher will continue to use the old integration method.

If you don't know which type of integration your institution is using, contact your Cengage representative.

Before You Begin

Set up integration at the start of the term, and only for WebAssign course sections with no enrolled students.

Important Turn off self-enrollment for your WebAssign course. Do not link an LMS course to an existing WebAssign course if:
  • students are already enrolled
  • you gave students a class key to self-enroll
