Important Information About Course Storage Quota

Quercus courses only have a 3GB storage quota. Large video and audio files take up a lot of space, so it’s recommended they’re stored somewhere other than Quercus. U of T Libraries Services offers an alternative storage solution called MyMedia, where you can upload larger files and link or embed them in your Quercus course.

Follow this Quercus Support FAQ to find out how much space you currently have available. For more information about MyMedia or other storage solutions, contact

Captioning and Microsoft Teams Session

Join central EASI Connect+Learn and representatives from Academic & Collaborative Technologies for a session on Captioning and Microsoft Teams. Learn how to use live captioning, create a transcript of meeting recordings and hear about recent updates to the captioning feature. Date: March 4, 2021 at 12 pm.
