GCS Online Teaching and Learning Resources
This page contains links to several of the instructional resources our students and staff use every day. The preferred (and easiest) way to access our resources is through Launchpad (https://launchpad.gcschools.net). These links are provided for convenience. Only links that students can log directly into are included here. Many of our learning resources can only be accessed through Launchpad.
Launchpad: https://launchpad.gcschools.net. Launchpad is the hub of everything we do! This resource allows students and staff to easily login to all of our resources!
Canvas: https://gcschools.instructure.com. Canvas is our Learning Management System. Teachers are able to post their lessons in Canvas. Students can complete their assignments anyplace they have an Internet connection.
GCSchools Video: https://gcsvideo.gcschools.net. This is our own video sharing platform. Teachers are able to live stream lessons or activities. Our school's morning news broadcasts are found here. Teachers can also post videos of lessons or other material that is helpful to our students.
Help: if you need assistance with a GCS device, visit https://help.gcschools.net. Click on the Live Chat button. Enter your name. You do not need to enter an email address. If the button says Leave Message, unfortunately, none of our technical specialists are available at the moment. Leave a message and we will get back to you as quickly as we can!
