You can add notes to any e-book page using the top note feature. Here are some general rules to keep in mind:

  • By default, instructor notes are public. Students can see them and reply to them. All students can also see all other students' replies.
  • You can also create private notes which only you, the author, will be able to see.
  • When students author a note, the notes are always private. The only way their notes will be public is if they're replying to an instructor's note.

If the following instructions do not match your experience in LaunchPad, you may have a new e-book which has different highlighting and notetaking features. Notes are always private in the new e-book (instructors can't share notes with students).

From an e-book page, click "Notes"

Select Add top note from the drop-down menu.


Enter your note

The default setting for your note is public. All students can see the instructor public notes, reply to them, and see other student replies.


If you'd like, use the drop-down menu to make your notes private

No students can see instructor private notes.


When you have finished creating your note, click "Post"


View your note

Your note will appear at the top of the e-book page. Students can reply to public instructor notes by clicking Reply.
