D2L - Using Macmillan LaunchPad (UW-Madison)

There is an integration between Desire2Learn (D2L) and Macmillan which allows deep linking to Macmillan content and course resources (interactive e-Books, exercises, adaptive quizzing, etc.) from inside D2L. The integration also offers single-sign-on between D2L and Macmillan course tools, as well as the ability for instructors to send grades from Macmillan tools directly to the D2L gradebook.

Important note:
As of Fall 2014, the integration is currently being offered as a "pilot" to a limited number of courses. If you're an instructor interested in using the Macmillan/Desire2Learn integration, please contact the Learn@UW Madison Support team at learnuwsupport@doit.wisc.edu.
