Which system am I using?
You may be using the Old LoudCloud if you see a purple/blue menu bar or if your url starts with lc-trad1.gcu.edu, lc-ugrad3.gcu.edu, or lc-grad3.gcu.edu.
You may be using the New LoudCloud (also referred to as the LMS) if your menu dropdown is on the left side or if your url starts with lms-trad.gcu.edu, lms-ugrad.gcu.edu, or lms-grad.gcu.edu.
LoudCloud has a built-in timer that will automatically log you out after 15 minutes of inactivity. The system will send an alert that you may be timed out due to inactivity and start a 30 second countdown. You can extend your session by selecting OK, which will reset the activity timer.
In the new instance of LoudCloud, the built-in timer will log you out automatically after approximately 28 minutes of inactivity (window inactivity is recognized when the page is minimized). At this time, a pop-up window will appear, giving you 30 seconds to either close or continue your session.
