LaunchPad combines an interactive e-book with high-quality multimedia content and ready-made assessment options, often including LearningCurve adaptive quizzing to engage your students.


Note: LaunchPad Solo provides high-quality multimedia content and ready-made assessment options, often including LearningCurve adaptive quizzing to engage your students, but without an e-book.


There are two methods you can use to locate your e-book in LaunchPad:

  1. Locate your e-book chapters inside LaunchPad units
  2. Locate your entire e-book using e-book filtering

 

Method 1: Locating your e-book chapters inside LaunchPad units

Click on a unit to open it



Click on the image to zoom in.
 

Click on the unit subchapter you want to view

You can then click the e-book item. E-book items often have an (e-book) subtitle to the right of the name. If they do not have an (e-book) subtitle, you can recognize them by the chapter and section number in the title, such as 1.1 in the example below.

Method 2: Locating your entire e-book using e-book filtering

If you want to view your entire e-book at once, click on the e-book link in the toolbar. on the left-hand side of the LaunchPad home page.


 

You are now viewing a table of contents for your entire e-book.

  1. Note that you will know you're viewing the e-book because LaunchPad will show Viewing eBook at the top of the page
  2. By clicking on chapters, you can view sub-chapters
  3. Click on the e-book item to view it

Navigating within the e-book pages

Note: Not all e-books have the features described below. In general, the most common and straightforward way to navigate the e-book is by clicking on each reading from the LaunchPad course home or eBook page.
  1. In the e-book, use the Read on button at the bottom to read the next section of the same reading (using the Previous and Next buttons will take you to the next reading in the e-book or into another resource entirely).
  2. The e-book also has a circle menu at the top left with a circle for each section of the current reading.
  3. Click the square below the circle menu to access a table of contents for the reading or show all sections of the reading.
