Take Advantage of What the Web Can Do

LaunchPad for Technical Communication, our new course space, combines an interactive e-Book with high-quality multimedia content and ready-made assessment options such as:
  • LearningCurve adaptive activities for the first ten chapters of the text, as well as the most serious grammatical errors and ESL topics

  • Document Analysis Activities with opportunities to assess multimedia sample documents, such as a proposal delivered as a Prezi presentation and instructions that use video screen capture

  • End-of-chapter cases that offer convenient downloads of the documents students need to work with

  • Digital writing tutorials that suggest ways to use free or common tools

  • "How to Cite" videos that show citation styles in action

  • A new test bank, created in response to instructor requests, that supports summative assessment.

LaunchPad also provides access to a gradebook that offers a window into your students' performance--either individually or as a whole. While a streamlined interface helps students focus on what’s due next, social commenting tools let them engage, make connections, and learn from each other. Use LaunchPad on its own or integrate it with your school’s learning management system so your class is always on the same page.
