In Canvas, how do I get started with Macmillan LaunchPad?

Note:
UITS recommends instructors teaching in Canvas at Indiana University use IU eTexts to adopt texts and digital learning tools (DLT) materials from Pearson MyLabs, Mastering Titles, McGraw-Hill Connect, Macmillan, Cengage, or Wiley Publishers. In addition to significant discounts off list prices, benefits of using IU eTexts include streamlined integration into Canvas, single sign-on for students (i.e., no access codes), and local technical support for faculty and students via the Support Center and etexthlp@iu.edu. For more, see, Searching the IU eTexts Catalog.
