You may find updated resources, quizzes, and/or quiz questions in a folder called [Date] Content Updates in your course. This article will show you how to locate and open the update folder. It's important to note, however, that not all LaunchPad courses have these updates.

Locate "Content Updates" folder

Scroll to the bottom of your LaunchPad units to find the unit titled [Date] Content Updates. The example below shows content updates for Summer 2017.

To Find and Replace Updated Resources

In some versions of LaunchPad you will find updated resources that you can use to replace outdated versions. If you've never assigned an earlier version of this resource, however, then you can assign the new version now as you would any other resource.

If you assigned an earlier version of one of these resources and want to replace it now then follow the instructions below.


Locate the updated resource you wish to use



Click "Remove" from the options drop-down on the outdated resource 



Click Assign to assign the new resource
