<< Link your Moodle Course to a LaunchPad/Writer's Help 2.0 Course

Please note: The following instructions are for LaunchPad, but the same steps can be followed when using Writer's Help 2.0.

Assign activities in LaunchPad first

To deploy gradable student activities so that they will be posted to the Moodle gradebook, you must first assign activities in LaunchPad with gradebook settings (points, due date, and a gradebook category).

Click "Macmillan Course Tools" in Moodle

After you assign activities in LaunchPad, navigate to your Moodle course page and click on the Macmillan Course Tools link.

Click "Macmillan Content"

On the Macmillan Course Tools page, click on Macmillan Content, which will launch the LaunchPad Table of Contents view (hereafter referred to as the TOC) in a new window.

Select items from "Assignments" folder

To deploy LaunchPad assignments to Moodle, click on the orange arrow next to Assignments to expand the folder and select one or more desired items from the expanded view by selecting the checkbox for each. Click on Next: Choose Location to proceed.

Note: The Assignments folder in the TOC view will only show items that are assigned in LaunchPad. If an item is not listed here, it hasn't been assigned in LaunchPad yet. You must first assign activities in LaunchPad before deployment.

Select Content Location

On the Select Content Location page, click on the drop-down menu for Choose a Section to decide which Moodle module you’d like to deploy your Macmillan content into. Click the Deploy Selected Content button to continue.

Content Added

You will receive a message in a modal window confirming that the selected LaunchPad content was added to your Moodle course. Close the modal window to return to your Moodle course.

Confirm that assignments appear in module

Proceed to the Content view in your Moodle course and confirm that the selected LaunchPad assignments now appear in your Moodle course module as shown below.
