onQ is getting a facelift

​Daylight upgrade will enhance the look and feel of Queen’s University’s enterprise learning management system.

If you're a student, faculty, or staff member at Queen's, you are likely familiar with the university’s enterprise learning management system, onQ. On May 1, onQ will receive an upgrade, called Daylight, that enhances the look and feel of the platform.

Daylight will change how onQ appears when you log in, but not how the platform works. It provides a cleaner interface, with new fonts and updated icons, providing a sleeker and more modern look. The upgrade to Daylight will make it easier to stay connected to onQ and access the system from anywhere – be it via your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop. 

“We are excited to offer our instructors and students a cleaner, more polished look for onQ,” says Jill Scott, Vice-Provost (Teaching and Learning). “Queen’s move to Daylight, an updated look and feel for onQ, provides our students with a more engaging and accessible learning experience while maintaining consistency in functionality.  The new responsive design will allow users to move seamlessly from desktop to laptop to mobile devices – this is a huge win for both instructors and students.”

The onQ Support site will be updated with relevant documentation about the upgrade. Ahead of the launch, showcase sessions will take place in April for those interested in seeing the enhancements being made to onQ firsthand. Details including dates, times and location will be added to the onQ Support site, once confirmed.

If you have any questions regarding the upgrade to Daylight, reach out to the onQ team by submitting a ticket through the ITSC Help Form.
