Among the updates we recently made to the LearningCurve quizzing engine (which you can read about here), one we think you'll find especially useful is the added ability to remove LearningCurve quiz topics that are not relevant to a course.

 

Below are instructions on how to edit LearningCurve topics, with a video showing the process.

 

  1. Log into LaunchPad and navigate to your course home page.
  2. Click on an assigned LearningCurve exercise.
  3. Click on the "Edit topics" button on the right side of the page.
  4. Deselect the check boxes next to any topics you wish to remove.
  5. Click the "Save Changes" button.
  6. Click the "That works for me!" button.


Your LearningCurve topics have been edited!

We wanted to share some resources showing how easy it is to copy your integrated LMS and LaunchPad or Writer's Help course. This makes it simple when teaching multiple sections or the same class next term.

 

We will also be hosting a series of webinars between Tuesday, May 17th and Thursday, May 18th that will walk through these steps and allow for the opportunity to ask questions specific to your course needs. Sign up for one below!

This semester, our faculty consultants will host a series of brief webinars (lasting 20 minutes, plus questions and answers) on how they use LaunchPad in their classes. They'll touch on how it's impacted their courses, what students think, and how it appears in their syllabi.

 

It's a great opportunity for anyone thinking about trying LaunchPad, or current users who would like to learn new ways to use it effectively.

 

Webinars will be offered by instructors who teach Biology, Communication, Economics, English, History, and Psychology.

 

View the webinar schedule and sign up at macmillanhighered.com/LPImplementationWebinars, or click on the "Peer-Led Webinars" tab in the navigation bar on the LaunchPad Community home page.

 

If have any questions, please let us know!

Kathryn Johnson of Northern Michigan University, will be leading a 20-minute webinar on Monday, November 16 at 2 PM EST.

 

She'll be talking about how LearningCurve adaptive quizzing benefits students and helps her to maximize class time. LearningCurve is the most popular feature in LaunchPad, so be sure to join us!
