    When he first adopted Macmillan’s online course space LaunchPad as the sole resource for his introductory psychology course, Nathan DeWall was far from a “power user.” But going with LaunchPad and an all-digital approach to the course has given him more freedom as a teacher—and overwhelmingly positive results in student engagement and retention.


    In this informative, interactive webinar, DeWall demonstrates how an introductory psychology course centered on LaunchPad can capture students’ attention to a degree far beyond just another slide deck. DeWall highlights the LaunchPad features you can use to address a variety of student needs, and show how a digital-only course can help with perhaps their biggest overall concern—making a smooth transition to the college classroom.
