eLearning Commons upgrade

UGA’s learning management system, eLearning Commons, will be unavailable during an upgrade that will start Dec. 27 and will end Jan. 2 at 5 p.m. The upgrade is scheduled to be completed before spring semester classes start Jan. 5.

The University System of Georgia is upgrading to a newer version of Desire2Learn, which powers eLC. This upgrade will result in an outage of eLC for several days.

The upgrade will mostly improve existing tools of eLC and will not include a design change. The complete list of changes is available at

Instructors are encouraged to plan in advance with this outage in mind. The EITS Help Desk will be closed for technical support when UGA is closed Dec. 25 through Jan. 1. Instructors who need technical assistance with eLC during that time, or any time, may contact the University System of Georgia’s Desire2Learn Help Center at
