D2L - Textbook Integration: Macmillan LaunchPad

This document details the textbook integration for Macmillan content.

UW-Parkside's learning management system Desire2Learn (D2L) is integrated with Macmillan LanchPad, which provides the following features:

  • Interactive e-book helps students understand the course material on a deeper level.
  • LearningCurve adaptive quizzing connects to the e-book and provides feedback for students to show them their mistakes and where to go for answers. 
  • Video Assignment Tool allows instructors to assign video-based projects from within LaunchPad.
  • LaunchPad gradebook automatically syncs itself with the D2L gradebook once assignments have been completed.
  • Optional pre-built units that correspond to each textbook, curated by the book's authors and/or experienced educators. Use some or all provided units to get started, or build your own modules from scratch. 
  • Resources such as textbook graphics, PowerPoint sets, test banks, and more.
  • Support available 24/7 through Instructor Support Community forums, and through Technical Support during specified times.
