McGraw-Hill Connect is Moving to the Cloud!

We’re committed to providing you with the best possible user experience, so we’re upgrading our platform this summer. On June 28th McGraw-Hill Connect will be moving to a cloud-hosted environment. This move will improve the reliability, security and scalability of the Connect platform, so that we can provide you with advanced features and workflow enhancements in the future. Stay tuned for additional posts over the next few weeks with details on the new Connect features being released this summer.

 

What does the move to the cloud mean for YOU?

 

If you are an instructor, this means:

 

1. Connect will be temporarily unavailable on Saturday, June 28th from 12:00AM – 6:00PM EDT. Plan for this outage and know you will not be able to access Connect or request assignment submissions during this time.  For help modifying your assignment due dates, please contact our Customer Experience Group at 800-331-5094 or submit a support request.

 

2. The site address is changing to http://connect.mheducation.com/.

 

a. If you access Connect directly, be sure to update your bookmarks after June 28th.  Don’t worry – a redirect will be in place in case you forget.

b. If you access Connect via an integration with your school’s Learning Management System (LMS), your existing assignment and/or course links to Connect will not be affected and no changes will be needed on your part.

 

3. Several other McGraw-Hill Education platforms will be inaccessible on June 28th due to the Connect cloud move, including: the Connect Success Academy, McGraw-Hill Create, the Create eBookstore, McGraw-Hill Shop, EZ Test Online, and our text-specific online learning centers with instructor and student resource materials.  Please plan your use of these sites accordingly.

 

If you are a student, this means:

 

1. Connect will be temporarily unavailable on Saturday, June 28th from 12:00AM – 6:00PM EDT. Plan for this outage and know you will not be able to access Connect or submit work during this time.
