These instructions are for LaunchPad, but the same steps can also be followed when using Writer's Help 2.0.

Only follow these instructions if the Macmillan Course Tools widget is not available on your D2L/Brightspace course homepage, and instead you added it to a D2L/Brightspace content module.

Click "Course Admin"

On your D2L/Brightspace course home page, click the Course Admin option in your course navigation bar across the top of the page. D2L/Brightspace will display the Course Administration page.


Click "Course Builder"

On the Course Administration page, click Course Builder under Site Resources.


If you see a Welcome page, click "Start" to go directly to the Course Builder

Locate the Macmillan widget on the Course Builder page

On the Course Builder page, notice the Macmillan course builder widget which appears among D2L/Brightspace’s Add Content options.


Drag and drop the widget into a module

Drag and drop the Macmillan content widget into the desired D2L/Brightspace course module as shown.


Enter your LaunchPad login credentials

When prompted, key your LaunchPad password and click LOG IN. The Token Registration page will be displayed.


Click "Authenticate"

The Token Registration pages are essentially asking the instructor’s permission to perform updates to this particular D2L/Brightspace course’s gradebook during the course of the semester. To proceed, simply click the Authenticate button.


Click "Continue"

When you see the confirmation message, click "Continue"

Associate your LaunchPad course

On the Choose Course page, find the LaunchPad course instance that you wish to link to your D2L/Brightspace course and click the Associate button for it.

Important note: If you don’t see the desired LaunchPad course listed on this page, contact your Macmillan sales rep, product specialist, or sales engineer.


Confirm the course association

In the Associate Course module click Yes, Associate This Course.


Click "OK"

In the Success! module, simply click OK.

The page shown here confirms that the course association was completed successfully. Simply close this browser tab or window and return to your D2L/Brightspace course.
