What can LaunchPad do for you?

We designed LaunchPad as a resource to help students achieve better results. Our goal was to increase their confidence by providing a place where they could read, study, practice, complete homework, and more.

It is a small investment on your part to get started. The rewards pay off for everyone.
 An interactive e-book brings together the resources students need to prepare for your class, working with the textbook you’ve selected.

LearningCurve adaptive quizzing
 offers individualized question sets and feedback for each student based on his or her correct and incorrect responses. All the questions are tied back to the e-book to encourage students to use the resources at hand. 
The Video Assignment Tool makes it easy for instructors to assign and assess video-based activities and projects, as well as providing a convenient way for students to submit video coursework. Instructors can assign videos from within Launchpad, or from anywhere on the internet, and can require students to comment on those videos.                    

An easy-to-use Gradebook provides a clear window on performance for the whole class, for individual students, and for individual assignments, to help you to give each student the support they need.                             

The streamlined interface helps students manage their schedule of assignments, while social commenting tools let them connect with classmates, and learn from each other. 24/7 help is a click away, accessible from a link in the upper right hand corner.

Optional pre-built units, curated by the book’s authors or other experienced educators, offer instructors a readymade set of assignments for each chapter or module. Assign some or all of the units as they are, customize units to suit your course, or choose not to use them and build a course from scratch.

The Resources link gives instructors quick access to carefully developed, book-specific teaching support materials (PowerPoint sets, textbook graphics, lecture and activity suggestions, solutions manuals, test banks, and more).

Easy LMS integration into any school’s learning management system means your gradebook and roster are always in sync. LaunchPad also works independently outside of LMS systems.
