eCore Learning Management System

eCore courses are located in GoVIEW, the learning management system offered by the University System of Georgia, not KSU's D2L Brightspace.

GoView Username and Password

Students taking an eCore course or courses for the first time need to create a GoVIEW password after you register. You will not be able to set this up before eCore recognizes your registration, please wait 24 hours from the time you register to complete these steps.

  • Go to GoVIEW.

  • Click "Forgot Password" and enter your username (KSU NetID_ksu, for example jsmith123_ksu). Do not enter your student email address.

  • eCore courses will not be available in GoView until the official first day of class.

  • After receiving the eCore Welcome Letter, a tutorial course entitled the eCore Connection will be available in GoVIEW which will familiarize you with the GoVIEW learning management system.

Required Attendance Verification

All eCore courses require student activity before the participation deadline to determine student presence.  Failure to do so will result in automatic administrative withdrawal.

Attendance Verification and Participation Deadline:

Students must log into their eCore class by the Participation Deadline and complete the eCore Mandatory Attendance Quiz and Introduction Discussion Activity.

If these two activities are not completed by the deadline, students will be reported as non-attending by the professor. Students reported as non-attending will be administratively withdrawn from the course. 

Students enrolled in more than one eCore class, must complete the attendance quiz and discussion activity in each class they are enrolled in.

To be counted as 'present', follow these steps:

  1. Log into GoVIEW using the information found in the eCore Welcome Email
  2. Take the Mandatory Attendance Quiz in each eCore class registered.
  3. Complete the Introduction Discussion Activity in each eCore class registered.

Reported as Non-Attending

Students receiving an email from the eCore Administration Office stating that they have been reported as non-attending in their eCore course, who have completed the above requirements and think the non-attendance report is in error should contact their instructor immediately. 

If the instructor finds in the student's favor then the instructor will submit an official reinstatement form allowing the student to remain in the course. 

Technical Issues

Instructors are not obligated to accept any excuse for course inactivity due to technical problems. It is your responsibility to report technical problems to the USG D2L Help Center as they occur or contact eCore Administrative Services at or 678-839-5300 or toll-free, 1-855-933-2673.
