REEF and LaunchPad: Together at Last

Blog Post created by Becky Anderson Employee on Mar 29, 2017

Just this week we released a new feature to all LaunchPad and Writer’s Help courses: REEF Integration. REEF, i>clicker’s mobile response system, enables you to poll and quiz students using the devices they already bring to class--smart phones, laptops, tablets, and even i>Clicker remotes.

 

What does this mean? As of today, you can link your REEF course to your LaunchPad course and quickly synchronize your students’ grades to LaunchPad. This allows students to have single sign-on with REEF and LaunchPad, and keep all their grades in one spot. We have a quick explanatory video for you.

 

How does this work? In REEF, navigate to your REEF course’s Settings and copy the link from the LMS Sync tab (which is accessible from the REEF Settings icon/page).

Then in LaunchPad, you will select “+ Add a new assignment” and you will now see the option for “Reef Course Link”.

Set up the assignment, making sure to paste in that URL from REEF. Voila!  You now have a column for REEF in your LaunchPad gradebook.

 

How much does this cost? As of today, 6 months of REEF access is only $5 when packaged with a Macmillan Learning Product. What a deal!

 

How can I learn more about REEF or this integration between REEF and LaunchPad and get access to REEF? Reach out to your local Macmillan Learning representative for more information.
