Grand Canyon University’s online learning management systems are specifically intended to host classrooms for current and recently completed classes. Student and faculty access to classes will be removed five (5) weeks following the course end date. Instructional Assistants will automatically lose access to their class the day after it ends. It is the responsibility of each student and faculty member to keep copies of all files uploaded to the online learning management system. The University is not responsible for making course content or files submitted to the online learning management system available to students or faculty members once the class has been removed.
You can access your previous courses in LMS for up to 5 weeks after the course has ended by selecting the title of your course to the right of Grand Canyon University. A drop-down menu will appear with a list containing all of your past LMS courses. Click on the previous course that you would like to access to enter the course.
You may also access your previous courses in LMS through your Integrated Dashboard. Start by selecting the Edit icon in the upper right corner of the My Classes widget, then select the downward arrow under Show. Select Past Classes from the drop-down menu to display previous courses. Click on the previous course you would like to access to enter the course.
Faculty and students may notice completed courses will not be moved from Current Classes drop-down menu until 3 weeks after the course end date. After 3 weeks, your courses will be moved into the Past Classes drop-down menu for 2 more weeks.
If you are accessing your classroom through the GCU Portal, the login information is your GCU email address and password. If you choose to log into LoudCloud directly, you will use your regular GCU username. For more information to use on each website, check out Student Login Information.
Occasionally, we will archive a LMS instance and start all new courses in a new website. If your previous courses do not show up in this drop-down menu, they may be in a previous instance of LoudCloud.
