Macmillan Launchpad is an ebook, homework, and adaptive quizzing platform that leads students through the material and exercises based on their level of learning and expertise. Launchpad is available for both Macmillan and Sapling books and courses.

How can I use Macmillan LaunchPad in Teaching?

  • Provide access to textbooks in a robust and easy-to-use online reader
  • Deploy pre-packaged or customized assignments, quizzes, and other activities from the publisher into Canvas for grades or practice
  • Adaptive practice activities help students identify and work through the parts of the materials that challenge them
  • Find and access curated instructor resources

What is unique about LaunchPad?

  • LaunchPad is built around the concept of adaptive quizzing. Students take periodic quizzes to evaluate their progress, identify which parts of the material they have mastered, and takes them back through the portions of the textbook and exercises for those areas where they remain deficient.

Technical requirements

LaunchPad is integrated into Canvas, so there is no software for students to install, it runs through the browser.
