When you use PeopleSoft LMS authentication, students and instructors can use self-service pages to view their class schedules or teaching assignments for a term.

An LMS button appears next to each LMS class on these pages either when a provider for authentication is identified or when an LMS URL is provided on the Schedule of Classes - LMS Data page. The LMS button works the same on the Student Center and My Class Schedule self-service pages for students and on the Faculty Center page for instructors.

Self-service users can also access a list of LMS providers and select the appropriate provider link to directly access their home page in that LMS provider's website.

Self-services users can access the Student Center or My Class Schedule self-service page and click the LMS button to transfer to the appropriate external LMS site.

When an LMS provider is identified for authentication and the student clicks the LMS button on a self-service page, the system authenticates the user and directly accesses the academic content for the specified class within the external LMS. With authentication, the user does not have to log in to the external site.

If instead of a provider an LMS URL is specified, no authentication takes place. The system transfers the student to the specified URL, such as an instructor's website, where he or she might have to log in.

For students, the LMS button appears next to an LMS class if they are enrolled in that class and have not dropped or withdrawn from the class.

If neither an LMS provider nor an LMS URL is assigned, the LMS button does not appear.
