Work will commence to migrate GCU’s edShare open educational resource repository from an on-site server to a cloud hosted solution on Monday 23rd January 2023. This will provide improved system performance, greater scalability and streamlined upgrades. After the migration, no existing edShare functionality will be lost. We have scheduled the migration work to take place during the Trimester A 2022/23 Inter Trimester Break to minimise service user impact. We will endeavour to ensure any system downtime is kept to a minimum and apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.
The migration will begin on Monday 23rd January and is expected to take up to three days. During this time resources hosted in edShare may be unavailable, including those embedded in GCULearn and the GCU website, and you will not be able to log in to edShare. Full access to the system and resources is expected to be restored by Thursday 26th January at the latest. The library team will then undertake an exhaustive testing programme with the aim of resolving any migration issues by Monday 30th January.
