LaunchPad for Introductory Psychology
What is LaunchPad?
LaunchPad is an intuitive course space offering straightforward navigation and a clean, crisp user experience.
How can LaunchPad make my job easier?
Materials are arranged in curated LaunchPad units, or chapters. These units can be simply edited, customized, and assigned in seconds to make setting up class a breeze.
What content can I add to a LaunchPad course?
You can add your own assignments, quizzes, a drop box, a discussion board, or an RSS feed to truly make the course your own.
How can data make my time spent with students more meaningful?
Powerful analytics are available for student activities, student performance, and detailed item analysis so you can see what students know and where they need help.
Can an online text be better than a printed version?
Every LaunchPad offers a full e-Book complete with note taking and highlighting tools, and instructor customizations.
How can I get my students to complete their homework?
LearningCurve is available in every LaunchPad and offers adaptive quizzing that is linked to the e-Book, encouraging the students to read before class.
How can I build and deliver quizzes easily?
You can use our pre-built quizzes or access all end-of-chapter and test bank questions to build your own graded assessments. You control the number of attempts, time, display, and feedback options allowing you to offer both higher stakes graded assignments as well as practice.
Concepts Practice: Interactive Activities
Concepts Practice provides animated reinforcement via multi-modal activities that students complete on their own. Each activity offers a visual and engaging option for reinforcement of important topics.
LaunchPad offers almost 200 video clips (3- to 12-minutes) culled from sources such as BBC Motion Library and CBS News. Each video clip is paired with a pre-built quiz to engage your students.
Investigations and Topic Tutorials allow you to assign students material to familiarize them with the experimental aspects of psychology. Students participate in virtual experiments, generating and working with data from those experiments. Check out the
