What is Quercus UOFT?

Quercus is the University of Toronto’s academic technology toolbox, powered by Canvas LMS. Students can access course content, view their progress in the course, and submit assignment files. Log in to Quercus UOFT with your UTORid at https://q.utoronto.ca.

Why is it called Quercus?

A student contest was conducted in the fall of 2017 to name the new LME. Three students proposed the name Quercus, all citing it as the Latin word for the Oak tree genus and its relation to the University of Toronto coat of arms’ oak tree and motto “velut arbor aevo”, Latin for “as a tree through the ages”.

How do I change my preferred display name?

To change your preferred display name in the Quercus please visit https://my.auth.utoronto.ca. Changes will be represented in Quercus after approximately 24 hours.

What should I do if I cannot access Quercus (Canvas) in my home country?

Due to government regulations, Instructure prohibits the unauthorized use of its products and services in specific countries and regions. Refer to “Which countries are restricted from using Canvas?” for the most up-to-date information. If you are a student living in one of these countries, you can try to access UOFT Quercus via the University of Toronto’s VPN service.

Can Quercus detect cheating?

Worry about being accused of cheating. This is from the Quercus UOFT website. If you go down to Quiz logs it says what information will be logged. If you leave the test for 15 seconds or more it will be logged and could be seen as cheating.

Why can’t I log in to Quercus with my UTORid?

You may not have activated your UTORid and password. If you are a first time UTORid user (both new and returning students) visit www.utorid.utoronto.ca and follow the instructions under “First Time users”.

As a New students, you have to activate your UTORid. You will find reference to a “Secret Activation Key”. This was originally issued to you when you picked up your T-card. If you have lost your “Secret Activation Key” you can visit your campus Help Desk.
