STUDENT REGISTRATION: Connecting your D2L and Launchpad Accounts


This video demonstrates how to connect your
D2L account with LaunchPad, so your LaunchPad grades automatically sync with the D2L Gradebook. To begin, login to your institution’s D2L
site and click into the course that’s using LaunchPad content. To initiate registration, click on any of
the LaunchPad links, either through the calendar or content areas of D2L. If you aren’t sure which activities are
LaunchPad assignments, click on the LaunchPad homepage link through Macmillan course tools. This will be available either on your D2L
course’s homepage or in one of the content areas. Click on the LaunchPad link. If a pop-up blocker is enabled in your web
browser, make sure to change the settings to always allow pop-ups from your school’s
D2L site. Click on the LaunchPad link again and the
registration screen will open in a new window. Check the box and agree to the legal terms. If the registration screen defaults to the
email address tied to your D2L account, and you do not already have a LaunchPad account,
fill in your First Name, Last Name, Password, and then confirm your email address, and password
and hit the register button. If you already created a LaunchPad account and completed assignments using a personal email or a different email than what’s presented
on the registration screen, hit the change button. This is important for grades to sync properly
with the D2L gradebook. It’s important to make sure that you aren’t
creating a new LaunchPad account if you already have one. Only one LaunchPad account can be synced with
your D2L gradebook at a time and this will ensure that all of your LaunchPad grades are reporting properly to the D2L gradebook. Enter your LaunchPad email address and hit
the submit button. Enter your LaunchPad password. If you don’t remember your LaunchPad password,
hit the “forgot password” button. Hit the submit button. If you already have a LaunchPad account, you will be taken directly into the LaunchPad site. If you are creating a LaunchPad account, you
will be presented with three options: If you purchased a package through your
school’s bookstore, you can enter the access code that comes packaged with the textbook. To purchase an online subscription with
a credit card or PayPal account, hit “purchase access.” If you aren’t sure what to do, you can
request free trial access for 21 Days. Once these actions are complete, your LaunchPad and D2L accounts will be connected and your LaunchPad grades will automatically sync with your D2L gradebook. If you click on any LaunchPad activity link
in D2L, LaunchPad will automatically log you in without needing a username or password. LaunchPad will open in a new tab or window
and take you directly to the activity. If you click the home button at the top left,
you can navigate to the LaunchPad homepage. If you have any questions, technical support can be reached at the top right of the LaunchPad homepage. Fill out the form and hit the submit button. They can be reached by phone at 1-800-936-6899. They are available on Eastern Time Monday through Thursday:
