Assistance for developing your course to be fully online



Using Quercus to deliver your course online

  • You do not need to request that a course be created, just login with your UTORid.  Your current courses should be visible on the Dashboard page.  



  • Courses are “unpublished” to your students by default, so they will not be notified of new announcements or able to access course materials/files that you share at first.  Your course must be “published” before students can see your course.
