Please note that the integration of Canvas with Macmillan’s LaunchPad/Writer's Help 2.0 must be coordinated with a Macmillan Sales Engineer. The Canvas administrator cannot complete the integration setup without input from a Macmillan Sales Engineer.

After Macmillan’s Sales Engineer has had an initial conversation with the school’s Canvas administrator to jointly review the school’s preferred implementation strategy and other requirements, they will arrange for the “on-boarding” call. During the on-boarding call, which is facilitated using an online WebEx session, they will walk through the process of setting up the integration between Canvas and LaunchPad/Writer's Help 2.0. The objective of the call(s) is to complete integration setup in the school’s live Canvas environment, including any testing that may be required, and to clear use of the integration by interested faculty.

To ensure that a Canvas LMS on-boarding session can be completed successfully, a few facts about the school’s adoption and LMS installation should be known so that Macmillan’s Sales Engineer can complete certain preparatory tasks in advance of the on-boarding call.

It would be helpful to know the name of the Macmillan product for at least one course and the name of its instructor. The Macmillan Sales Engineer and the Canvas administrator may use this information during the testing portion of their on-boarding call. If instructor course details are not available at the time of the on-boarding the Macmillan Sales Engineer will provide a test LaunchPad/Writer's Help 2.0 course and test user credentials.

The Macmillan Sales Engineer will defer to the school’s Canvas administrator on whether the integration setup will be first completed and tested in a Canvas “beta” environment before proceeding with setup and testing in the school’s live Canvas environment.
