Quercus: New Learning Management System to replace Portal

PGME NewsComments Off on Quercus: New Learning Management System to replace Portal

In October 2017, Susan McCahan Vice Provost, Innovations in Undergraduate Education and Avi Hyman, Director, Academic & Collaborative Technologies announced the pending closure and replacement of the institution’s Learning Management System, Blackboard Portal. The University has selected “Canvas” to serve as the new Learning Management Engine (LME) for its academic toolbox environment. Following a university-wide student contest, the new environment is called “Quercus” (The name, Latin for the Oak tree genus, follows the oak theme at the university that is seen in ACORN and the university motto and crest.).

Read more about how this will impact Postgraduate Training programs in the Faculty of Medicine and next steps on Quercus’ replacement of the Portal.
