Please note: Macmillan Course Tools will be available in your school’s D2L/Brightspace site only after your Administrator has completed the integration setup with the assistance of the Macmillan Learning Integration team.


Some institutions prohibit instructors from adding Macmillan Course Tools to a D2L/Brightspace course homepage. If you do not have this option available in your course, please try the instructions in this article: Adding Macmillan Course Tools to a D2L/Brightspace Content Module.


If Macmillan Course Tools are not available at all in your D2L/Brightspace courses, please contact your Macmillan Learning Representative.
