IMPORTANT REMINDER: MS Teams Recordings now in OneDrive

Microsoft Teams recordings will now be stored in your "Recordings" folder on OneDrive and will no longer be uploaded directly to MS Stream. Unfortunately, this means MS Teams' auto-generated captions will no longer be added to recordings. In order to add captions, the recording must now be downloaded from OneDrive and uploaded to MS Stream.


Importing and Copying Content in Quercus (Video)

There may be times when you will need to copy content from one course page to another - for instance, a module or a group of files. We've created this short video demonstrating the process. As with many tasks in Quercus, there is more than one way to get the job done. For example, you can copy a quiz to another course in seconds from within the Quizzes menu itself. Click here to learn more.


Connect and Learn Events

UofT's Connect and Learn series offers short, lunchtime sessions for faculty and staff that provide training on commonly used technologies. They can be helpful when trying to integrate new tools into your program or course. Click here to view the upcoming events calendar. 


Draw on your Browser While Teaching

If you teach using a browser, this handy Chrome extension may be worth looking into. The Web Paint extension allows you to draw directly onto your browser window. This is helpful when you want to emphasize website content or make connections between ideas. Click here to install the extension and try it out. (Google Chrome only).
