Macmillan (Achieve, LaunchPad): Link to Moodle

Before you start, you will need:

  • an Instructor of record or Other editing teacher role in a Moodle course
  • an Instructor account for the Macmillan tool you want to use
  • to set up your "course" within the Macmillan tool you want to use

Moodle features an integration that lets instructors use Macmillan's learning platforms (e.g., Achieve or LauchPad) as part of their course.

Add a Macmillan activity

  1. Open your Moodle course and click Turn editing on (if it isn't on already)
  2. Click + Add an activity or resource
  3. Click the Activities tab, then click External tool. 
  4. Enter an Activity name, then choose Macmillan LTI Tools from the Preconfigured tool menu as shown below.

  2. You'll see a Success! message when the connection is made. Click OK to close this window.  

You should now see a set of instructor course troubleshooting and support tools (Diagnostics, Roster Information, etc.) in the content window. Please note: students see different tools for troubleshooting their own accounts and getting technical support when they open this activity.

Additional Support

See Macmillan's instructor and student guides for your product on the Macmillan Learning Support site for detailed information on how to use it and avenues for further support. Although LITS can help you with Moodle's Macmillan integration, we do not administer Macmillan platforms and can't provide support for them. 

Note: For Macmillan's Moodle-related articles, be sure you are reading the deep integration versions. Some information in the "basic integration" guides will not apply to the connection you make.
