STUDENT REGISTRATION: Connecting your Canvas and LaunchPad Accounts


This video demonstrates how to connect your Canvas account to your LaunchPad account, so your LaunchPad grades automatically connect to Canvas. To begin, login to your Canvas site and access the Canvas course that’s using LaunchPad content. To initiate registration, click on any LaunchPad assignment link. If you aren’t sure which assignments are LaunchPad assignments, click on the “Macmillan App” on the left side of your Canvas course. The App might also be called “LaunchPad” or “Writer’s Help.” Click on the “LaunchPad” link. If a pop-up blocker is enabled in your web browser, make sure to adjust your browser settings. If you experience any issues accessing LaunchPad content, please visit the links in the notes section below. Click on the “LaunchPad” link again and the registration screen will open in a new tab or window. Agree to the legal terms. If you do not already have a LaunchPad account, use your school email address. Enter your first name, last name, password, and confirm your email address and password. Hit “Register.” If you already have a LaunchPad account, and it’s different than the email at the top of the registration screen, hit the “change button.” This is important for LaunchPad grades to report to Canvas. Only one LaunchPad account can be connected to Canvas at a time. If you create a second LaunchPad account, only a portion of your LaunchPad grades will report to the Canvas Gradebook. Enter your LaunchPad email address and hit “Submit.” Enter your LaunchPad password. If you can’t remember your LaunchPad password, Hit the “forgot password” button. Hit “Submit.” Click “Enter an Access Code” to enter your Launchpad Access Code. Click “Purchase Access” to buy an online subscription to LaunchPad. Click “Request Free Trial” for temporary access to LaunchPad for 21 days. If you requested free trial access, make sure to apply full access to the same LaunchPad email address or only a portion of your LaunchPad grades will report to the Canvas gradebook. Once you have registered, you will be able to access your LaunchPad assignments through the links in Canvas. Click on the LaunchPad assignment link and click on the box to load the assignment in a new tab or window. Always access LaunchPad content through Canvas to ensure that your LaunchPad grades report to the Canvas gradebook. If you have any questions, please contact Macmillan Technical Support. Click on the “home button” at the top left of the LaunchPad assignment to be taken to the Launchpad homepage.
