NOTE: Portal/Blackboard is going away on August 31, 2018. You must save your old data from Blackboard before then if you wish to access it after that date. Course instructors are responsible for having Blackboard Grade Center information saved in the event of grading issues brought up after Blackboard is retired.

Quercus is the name of the University of Toronto’s new teaching and learning environment (which is replacing Portal). It runs on the Canvas engine from Instructure.

This site is for information about Quercus/Canvas for our Departmental users.
