2018

We have a few changes that we think you’ll like for Fall 2018 classes.

 

  1. If you are using the quiz program that allows for you to use filters, we now have the ability to print. When you are in the Review & Modify tab, you will now see a button that says “Print” in the top left. Download e-Book Link
  2. Most LaunchPads now have a downloadable ebook. Students can look under the Help link in the upper right for the option to “Download Offline eBook”. Here’s what the download link looks like and here are the directions for using it.Download e-Book Link
  3. Speaking of which, if you are looking at the Help link above, and go to one of the Support Sites, you’ll notice that we have a new self-help support center that we’re excited about. We hope you’ll find it easier to use.
  4. Lastly, we now have what we call “seamless access” to LaunchPad via the Macmillan Learning Student Store. That means that students can buy or rent the book or LaunchPad or combination of book and LaunchPad that works for them in the Store and, once they purchase, they will automatically be let into their LaunchPad course--without the need for codes! The directions will be posted on this page for your use this fall.
