This article includes instructions specifically for the new LMS. If you are not currently testing the new LMS pilot, please see our section on LoudCloud.
When you log into the Learning Management System, you will be taken to the Homepage. This is a customizable page from where you can access your classes as well as view your Planner, Gradebook, and Submissions. You can access the Homepage from anywhere by clicking the Grand Canyon University logo in the upper left-hand corner of the page.
By default, the My Classes widget will be displayed on your Homepage; this widget cannot be disabled as it provides the link(s) to your class(es).
You can add widgets to your Homepage by clicking on the Dashboard Widget icon in the upper right-hand corner. To add a widget, check the box for the desired widget. To remove a widget, simply uncheck the box next to the corresponding widget.
Customizing Your Widgets
There are several options available for customizing the widgets on your Homepage.
Widgets can be reorganized on the Homepage in a fashion that best fits your needs. To move a widget, hover over the Title Bar, then click and drag the widget to its desired location.
Customizing Individual Widgets
The My Classes, Gradebook, and Submissions widgets each have their own customizable features; these include filtering and color options. To edit these features, hover over the Edit icon. This will display a menu of features that you can select for the widget.
