How to find courses on uga eLC
Courses in which you are enrolled should appear on your uga eLC Homepage. These courses are “pinned” in your course listing so that they show up on the Homepage and in your Menu of Courses.
To view your list of current and recent courses, click the Waffle Icon on the Menu located at the top of the screen. Your pinned courses will appear first with recent courses appearing after.
If you do not see your course, click on View All Courses underneath the list of “My Courses.” A search bar will then be available.
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 on the envelope at the top of the screen.
If you receive a message that indicates you have a quiz to finish, return to the quiz and make sure it was submitted after it was finished. Emails can not be sent in eLC during a quiz.
If the quiz is closed and you are not able to access it, please contact your instructor. If you did not take a quiz, notify EITS or the D2L help center through the contact information at the top of this page.
Students can receive emails and/or text messages when items are added to UGA eLC.
Common notifications include when instructors make announcements on the course home page, when due dates for assignments are approaching, and when discussions are posted on the discussion board.
To manage notifications, click on your name on the right-hand corner of the main UGA eLC page and then click on Notifications.
