August 22, 2012

As of  January 2013, SPSU will no longer be using GeorgiaVIEW Vista. If you have files stored in your "My Files" area in GeorgiaVIEW Vista, use these instructions to zip them and download them to your computer.


By selecting Desire2Learn as the next generation LMS, the University System of Georgia has positioned itself to enhance the educational experience of students and faculty. This will be called GeorgiaVIEW D2L.
