LaunchPad and LaunchPad Solo are both intuitive course spaces with curated, pre-built lessons, but there is one important difference between the two.


LaunchPad has an e-book and LaunchPad Solo does not

  • LaunchPad combines an interactive e-book with multimedia content and ready-made assessment options, often including LearningCurve adaptive quizzing that will engage you with the material.
  • LaunchPad Solo provides multimedia content and ready-made assessment options, often including LearningCurve adaptive quizzing that will engage you with the material, but without an e-book.
 

Signs that you are using LaunchPad with e-book

  1. The pre-built units in your table of contents may be organized around e-book chapters. They may have titles beginning with Chapter 1, Chapter 2, etc.
  2. There is an eBook icon in the left-hand navigation menu. This will take you to a table of contents that only contains readings from the e-book and no other assignments or resources.
  3. Items in your table of contents contain the text (e-Book) next to them in green to indicate they are from your e-book.

Signs that you are using LaunchPad Solo without e-book

The units in LaunchPad Solo contain easy-to-use modules and activities, but do not contain an e-book.

  2. You may not see an e-book icon in the left sidebar.
