Store audio and video files, then embed them within Quercus for easy student access. You can also improve security and protect privacy by limiting file sharing to the U of T community.

Instructors and students can use a virtual environment (Citrix/Xenweb) to access software from the cloud for course-based assignments. 

We strongly recommend submitting a ticket to I&ITS to discuss your Citrix needs before your course begins.  You can also read our Citrix/Xenweb setup documentation (coming soon) when you are ready to get started.
