Earlier this year, Grand Canyon University launched a new Learning Management System (LMS) for students and faculty. As of July 15th, 2019, lc-ugrad3.gcu.edu has been archived.
Please be aware that, in compliance with GCU’s Learning Management System Availability policy, students are not guaranteed access to courses for more than five (5) weeks following the course end date. We encourage you to keep copies of all files uploaded to your online classrooms and save any course materials and eBooks to a personal computer prior to the end of each course.
In order to access your courses, navigate to your Student Portal. Log in using your GCU email and password. Click on the class link within your Student Portal to enter the course.
After logging into your course, start by accessing the Connect tab and select Forums.
Make sure to select Discussion Question at the top of the page and here you will find a list of all Discussion Questions from your course. Chose the DQ you would like to enter by clicking the link.
Once inside of your DQ, highlight the question by holding down your left mouse button and dragging across the question. You can also select all of the text while holding down the Ctrl key (command/cmd key on a Mac) and pressing the A key.
After the text is highlighted, you can copy the question by holding Ctrl (command/cmd on a Mac) and pressing C on your keyboard or by right-clicking and selecting Copy. Finally, paste the question into a Word document by holding Ctrl (command/cmd on a Mac) and pressing V on your keyboard or by right-clicking and selecting Paste.
Now that you have copied the question, scroll down to locate your response. Click the respective link to your answer, then copy and paste your response into the same Word document.
Repeat these steps to save any Discussion Questions you would like from any of your previous courses!
After logging into your course, you can access your previous assignments from the Home tab by clicking the assignment from the Calendar. You can navigate to different weeks by clicking the respective link next to Week in the upper right-hand side of the Calendar.
Once inside of the Assignment Details page, click on the Files link to expand your attempts. Towards the end of the attempt you will be given a download option. Once selected it will begin downloading the assignment. Repeat these steps to save any previous assignment.
Once you are logged into your course, navigate to Path and click on Course Material.
From the drop-down menu, select the title of your eBook. Next, click on the URL to visit the Digital Resources page.
Finally, click on the PDF icon to begin downloading the PDF version of your eBook. You can also click on the globe icon and bookmark the Web Viewer version of the eBook for quick access. If you find that your eBook is in a Webbook format, review hot to download Webbooks Published by GCU.
At the top of the LMS page, there is a drop-down menu that allows you to easily switch from one course to another. The menu is located at the top left-hand side.
To switch courses, click on the menu and select the course you would like to enter. That’s it! The page will refresh and the selected course will appear. You can also click on the Grand Canyon University to return to the LMS integrated homepage.
