UGA eLC: Your Resource for Online Learning
The University of Georgia has a new online learning management system, UGA eLC. UGA eLC is a course management system designed to help educators create online courses and foster student engagement.
UGA eLC offers a variety of features, including a classroom, assignments, forums, wikis, and chat. There are also many other features that make UGA eLC a powerful tool for educators.
Sometimes it is also called D2L (the company that provides eLC) and Brightspace (what D2L calls the product).
eLC can be thought of as a huge repository that stores and tracks information about coursework.
Anyone can login to eLC with a valid UGA MyID password and log in using a computer or a mobile device.
To log into elc at uga,
- Go to elc.uga.edu
- Click on “UGA MyID Login”.
- Enter your username on the log in page.
- Next, enter your password.
- To sign in, click the Login button
Log in using your MyID and password. The URL now changes to uga.view.usg.edu. This address shows that eLC, the UGA instance of Virtual Instruction Enterprise-Wide within the University System of Georgia, is located at uga.view.usg.edu.
My Home page displays the Mini Bar, Navigation Bar and Widgets, which are all standard for UGA users.
UGA Single Sign On, or UGA SSO is the single-sign authentication system used by most campus applications.
UGA SSO offers improved authentication connections, greater security, and the ability to use two-factor authentication for web applications.
eLC is a FERPA-protected platform that allows UGA (Athena) courses to host classroom content and activities in a digital learning space.
You can use UGA eLC, for example, to store and share documents, create quizzes and engage students in an online discussion, provide audio and video resources, and deliver course announcements.
It’s highly customizable, allowing instructors to customize course content and experiences.
How do I find courses on uga eLC
Your uga eLC Homepage should display courses in which you are enrolled. These courses can be “pinned” to your course listing, so they appear on your Homepage and in the Menu of Courses.
Click the Waffle Icon at the top of your screen to view your current and most recent courses. The pinned courses will be first, followed by the most recent.
Click on View All Courses to see all courses. A search bar will be displayed.
Students who receive an “Error: Not Authorized” message when attempting to access their eLC email should first check to see if they have a quiz in progress. Click the envelope at the top.
You may receive a message indicating that you have a quiz due to be completed. If this happens, go back to the quiz and verify that it was submitted after it has been completed. Emails cannot be sent during a quiz via eLC.
If you cannot access the quiz after it has closed, please contact your instructor. You can contact EITS or D2L to report that you have not taken a quiz.
When items are added to UGA eLC, students can receive email and/or SMS messages.
Notifications that are common include announcements from instructors on the course homepage, approaching due dates for assignments, and postings to the discussion board.
Click on your name in the upper right corner of the UGA eLC homepage and click on Notifications.
