Blackboard to Quercus

UofT has bought a new learning management system called Quercus, and Blackboard (The Portal) is being phased out. That means you have until August 31st, 2018, to download and archive everything you have right now in The Portal. Here are the 3 crucial steps to take before the end of August: (1) Archiving your Blackboard courses; (2) Downloading the Blackboard grade centre for each course into an Excel file; (3) Downloading Blackboard course content. The tutorials below should explain all three. A fourth tutorial gives you an overview of what a Quercus course site looks like. If you have any questions, please contact

Sign up for a UofT Quickstart Quercus Workshop!
