Quercus System


Quercus is the new learning management system that has replaced Blackboard. It is a Web-based suite of software designed to allow students and faculty to participate in classes delivered online or use online materials and activities to complement face-to-face in class teaching. Quercus enables instructors to provide students with course materials, discussion forums, course specific e-mail, electronic announcements, virtual chat, online quizzes, and more. The degree to which Quercus is used in a course varies. For example, some instructors supplement an on-campus class by putting their syllabus and handouts on their course sites. In contrast, other courses use some of Quercus applications and on-line tools for more collaborative endeavours.

Not all Faculty of Law courses use Quercus. Please check the course descriptions on the main Faculty of Law website.
