College of Coastal Georgia Students:
To find your username for https://go.view.usg.edu, follow these instructions:

  1. Login to C.O.A.S.T.  Your C.O.A.S.T. user ID is the same as your student ID. Your initial password is your birth date as mmddyy (i.e. if your birth date is January 1, 1992 your default password is 010192)
  2. Select "Student Information"
  3. Next select "View Desire2Learn/GoVIEW Account"
  4. Write down the Desire2Learn/GoVIEW username for future reference: Remember, your GoVIEW username will not be your student ID (9200 number).
  5. For GoVIEW, your username includes an underscore (_) plus your campus acronym (CCGA). For Example, if you wrote down jdoe23, then your GoVIEW username will be jdoe23_ccga

 

Passwords:
Your password will be whatever your Banner Password was at the time that you registered for your eCore course this semester. If you cannot remember your password or have password issues, you may access the "Forgot Password?" link directly under the login area on the GoVIEW site, https://go.view.usg.edu. When clicking on the "Forgot Password" Link, you will need to type in your new username in the format listed above. The password reset link will be emailed to your campus email address. The email will be sent from donotreply@donotreply.view.usg.edu.

Important: If you choose to reset your password you will need to wait 5-10 minutes after reseting your password for the change to be processed OR refresh your browser window. If you still cannot access GoVIEW, please contact the eCore Helpdesk at 678-839-5300 or 1-855-93ECORE (1-855-933-2673) or ecore@westga.edu.

  • Log into your eCore class
  • Click on "Content" from the top navigation or the "Content Browser" in the middle of the course homepage
  • Click on the arrow next to "Syllabus and Start Items"
  • Click on "eCore Mandatory Attendance Quiz"


Please note: Instructors are not obligated to accept any excuse for course inactivity due to technical problems.
