I purchased a package with a LaunchPad/Writer's Help 2.0 access card in the bookstore and have already registered the code on the card. What should I do now?

The following instructions are for Writer's Help 2.0, but the same steps apply when using LaunchPad.

If you followed the instructions on the Writer's Help 2.0 access card that was shrink-wrapped with the package you purchased in your bookstore, then you probably went directly to the URL of your Writer's Help 2.0 title and registered your access code there. Sound familiar? If so, follow these steps to link the Writer's Help 2.0 account you created with your Canvas course.
