Cross-listing is useful when you are teaching multiple sections of a course and you wish to combine them in order to share and streamline resources. Cross-listing can be used to combine

  • multiple lecture (LEC) sections you are teaching in Quercus by cross-listing them into one primary course. Once your sections are cross-listed, students will only see the primary course on their Dashboard and list of courses.  Follow the instructions below to cross-list multiple LEC sections.  Use the Cross-listing Request Form or QR code below to request a change in the name of the primary course (to All Sections).
     
  • all practicals (PRA) and tutorials (TUT) you are teaching under the main course.  Note:  An instructor must be added to a course section in order to cross-list it. Please use the Cross-listing Request Form or QR code below to be added as an Instructor to your tutorial or practical course sections in Quercus.
     

Also, it is possible to restrict TA access to a specific section.

Notes:

  • Cross-listing should be done while the courses that are being cross-listed are unpublished. If a published course is cross-listed, all cross listed enrolments will lose any associated assignment submissions and grades.
  • If you have cross-listed your LEC with TUT or PRA Quercus sections, then the random distribution of students into groups by section will not work properly.  Instead, you may need to use the UT Advanced Group Tool to distribute groups within sections when cross-listing has been completed. 

Please contact us at utml.instructech@utoronto.ca if you would like us to rename the course section that remains after you complete the cross-listing process.

Step-by-step Instructions for Cross-listing

1. Enter the course that you want to cross-list (e.g., TUT0101) or combine with your primary course section (e.g., LEC 0101) and click on “Settings" in the course menu.

The course card for the section that you cross-listed will now disappear from your Dashboard, but it's enrolment information will be available in the primary course. Students will now only have access to the main course, not any tutorial and practical sections that you have cross-listed.

Re-naming your Cross-listed Course

After you have completed the cross-listing process the resulting combined course name that the students see on their Dashboard, course list and course Home page may be confusing.

Please let us know if you would like rename the primary course section that remains after you complete the cross-listing process when using the Cross-listing Request Form or contact us at utml.instructech@utoronto.ca.

The breadcrumb at the top of the page will show the new course code.
