One of my instructors taught with LaunchPad/Writer's Help 2.0 last semester. Does this mean I am already set up?

These instructions are for LaunchPad, but you can follow the same steps if you are using Writer's Help 2.0.

Not exactly, but you're halfway there! The good news is that you have a LaunchPad account, so you don't have to create a new one. Now all you have to do is to link your LaunchPad account with your current instructor's D2L/Brightspace course and select your access option.

Log in to your institution's D2L/Brightspace site

Navigate to where your instructor has put LaunchPad content and click on the content area to open it. There are three likely places:

  1. From the navigation bar across the top right of your course, select Content.
  2. From the calendar module. Assignments are listed according to upcoming due dates.
  3. From the LaunchPad logo within the Macmillan Course Tools area. This will take you to the LaunchPad homepage, not to a specific assignment.

Which screen do you see?

You'll see one of a few different screens, depending on how your campus IT team set up your institution's D2L/Brightspace integration with LaunchPad. When you see your screen, follow the instructions provided.
