eLearning Commons changes

UGA’s online learning management system, eLearning Commons, will change its login process, effective the weekend of May 22-23.

Users will no longer see boxes to enter their username and password directly on the eLC website ( Instead, they will be asked to click one of two links, depending on their login credentials, which will redirect them to separate login pages.

Users with UGA MyIDs will click a link on the eLC website that will redirect them to the Central Authentication Service, which is used by many of UGA’s online services as a unified and secure login process.

Once users enter their MyID and password into CAS, they will be redirected to their eLC home page.

If a user already is logged in to CAS with a MyID through another service, such as the MyUGA Portal, clicking on the eLC login link will send that user directly to their eLC home page.

Users without UGA MyIDs (users who are not UGA students, faculty or staff) will click a link on the eLC website that will take them to an eLC login page, where they will enter their assigned username and password as usual.

By offering CAS authentication, MyID users will have a more efficient login experience for accessing eLC, both on the Web and through the official UGA mobile app.

Work to move eLC logins under CAS will begin May 22 at 10 p.m. and continue through May 23 at 7 a.m. eLC will be unavailable during this maintenance window.
