Getting Started with eCore
Print this checklist and complete before or no later than the first few days of class.
You should now have access to log in to your GoVIEW account, by following the log in directions below. You should also log in before classes begin to ensure your username and password are working correctly.
How to Log In:
To login to GoVIEW go here: https://go.view.usg.edu
Your username will be the same as your campus email username prefix followed by an underscore (_) plus an assigned acronym for your campus.
Please note: If you are a previous eCore student, you are assigned a new username format beginning Spring 2013 Term. Students will need to replace the @ character with an underscore (_) when entering their username.

College of Coastal Georgia Students:
To find your username for https://go.view.usg.edu, follow these instructions:
- 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)
- Select "Student Information"
- Next select "View GoVIEW Account"
- Write down the GoVIEW username for future reference: Remember, your GoVIEW username will not be your student ID (9200 number).
- 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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com.
Log in to your eCore course on the first day of class or as soon as possible thereafter and complete the eCore Mandatory Attendance Quiz and any other orientation/introduction activities. See below for the class start and log in deadline for the session in which you are enrolled.
For Attendance Verification:
You must log in to your eCore class by the log in deadline (the earlier the better) and participate in the course by completing the eCore Mandatory Attendance Quiz and Introduction Discussions Activity, or you will be reported as non-attending by your professor. If you are reported as non-attending, you may be withdrawn or dropped by your home institution.
If you are enrolled in more than one eCore class, you must complete the start-up activities and the eCore Mandatory Attendance Quiz in each class you are enrolled in this term.
How to be counted "present" in your eCore class:
- Login in to GoVIEW using the information found in your eCore Welcome Letter.
- Take the Mandatory Attendance Quiz in each of your eCore classes.
- Complete the Introduction Discussions Activity in each of your eCore classes.
Please note: 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 678-839-5300 or toll-free, 1-855-93ECORE (1-855-933-2673).
