Welcome to the Latest Edition!

Good morning Rotman!  

This week we feature a video that explores Open Educational Resources and how they can be incorporated into Quercus courses. We also highlight an upcoming Contact North webinar focused on creating engaging experiences in Zoom breakout rooms. 

Below we also explore the UofT Advanced Group Tool (UTAGT). Have you ever needed to pull a list of student email addresses and found that there's no obvious way to do it? The tools we typically use in Quercus only scratch the surface of what is available and in this case, the UTAGT provides the solution. You'll find detailed instructions below.

For more information on course design, video creation, and Quercus, please visit rotmandigital.ca 

If you have feedback, questions, or would like to schedule an appointment, please reach out to us at rotmandigital@rotman.utoronto.ca.
