Just before Christmas 2016 we shared the news with you that Glow Wikis would be removed from Glow in October 2017. I am emailing you today to remind you this is happening and the reasons for the change.
After a detailed review of the service, it was found that usage of Glow Wikis was very low across all Local Authorities over the last two years. A decision has therefore been made to discontinue this service as it does not provide value for money.
We understand that this will impact existing Wiki users, however alternatives exist within Glow to which existing Wikis content could be migrated. These include Glow Blogs and, within O365, other wiki and blog type applications which offer similar functionality whilst still enabling collaboration between Glow users for learning and teaching.
There will, unfortunately, be no automated transfer from Glow Wikis to these services, however it is possible for users to manually transfer content.
At this stage, we therefore encourage Glow Wiki users who haven’t already done so, to transfer any content they wish to keep to these alternative services.
Please get in touch with the Learning through Technology Team if you have any queries re the above.
