Please note: The Canvas/Macmillan Writer's Help 2.0 integration will be available in your Canvas course only after your Canvas LMS Administrator has completed the integration setup with the assistance of Macmillan Learning. You will be notified by either your Canvas Administrator or your Macmillan Rep when this preparatory work has been completed.

Check for "Macmillan Learning" in left navigation menu

On your Canvas course home page, in the Course Navigation panel, confirm that a link exists for Macmillan Learning. If the Macmillan Learning link is not present, please continue following the steps in this article. If it is present, proceed to the next article, Pair your Canvas course with a LaunchPad or Writer's Help 2.0 course.
