The University’s online learning management system, eLearning Commons (eLC), will change its log-in 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 (elc.uga.edu). Instead, they will be asked to click one of two links, depending on their log-in credentials, which will redirect them to separate log-in pages.
Users with UGA MyIDs will click a link on the eLC website that will redirect them to the Central Authentication Service (CAS), which is used by many of UGA’s online services as a unified and secure log-in process.
Once users enter their MyID and password into CAS, they will be redirected to their eLC homepage.
If a user is already logged in to CAS with a MyID through another service, such as the MyUGA Portal, clicking on the eLC log-in link will send that user directly to their eLC homepage.
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 log-in 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 on May 22, at 10 p.m. and continue through May 23, at 7 a.m. eLC will be unavailable during this maintenance window.
