The purpose of this online, self-paced course is to assist educators in learning the basics of ClassLink for Launchpad. Many educators have to use various tools to track login credentials for software programs, district tools, and application credentials. With ClassLink LaunchPad capabilities, educators can spend more time focusing on creating meaningful learning experiences for their students and less time worrying about individual login credentials.
