If you first linked your Canvas course to the wrong LaunchPad or Writer's Help 2.0 course, you can correct the pairing by unlinking the two courses, then re-associating your Canvas course with a different LaunchPad/Writer's Help 2.0 course.

Very important note: If there are students already enrolled in your LaunchPad/Writer's Help 2.0 course, please contact your Macmillan Sales Engineer before performing this operation. In certain integration scenarios you will need the assistance of your Macmillan Sales Engineer and/or Macmillan Higher Education’s Technical Support to effect a clean break between your Canvas course and the LaunchPad/Writer's Help 2.0 course.

Open your Canvas course and go to "Macmillan Learning"

To access the Unlink Macmillan Course page click the Macmillan Learning link in the course navigation panel of your Canvas course.


Click "Unlink Macmillan Course"

On the Macmillan Tools page, click Unlink Macmillan Course.


Click "Yes, Disassociate this Course"

On the Sever this Course Association page, confirm the name of the LaunchPad course that you wish to unlink. Click Yes, Disassociate this Course.


Return to Canvas, reconnect the courses, or view other LaunchPad courses

You will see a message confirming that your Canvas course is no longer linked to the LaunchPad course. From here, you may take one of three actions:

  1. Return to Canvas by simply closing this browser tab that the confirmation message appears in.
  2. Re-associate your Canvas course with the same LaunchPad course to which you just broke the link by clicking Reconnect this course.
  3. Pair your Canvas course with a different LaunchPad course by clicking View available courses.


View available courses

Canvas will display the Macmillan Choose Course page.

Associate another LaunchPad course with your Canvas course

On the Choose Course page carefully review the list of courses shown and select the LaunchPad course that you wish to pair with your Canvas course by clicking the Associate button. If you need additional guidance, please see the help article Pair your Canvas course with a LaunchPad or Writer's Help 2.0 course.
