iWork.com Going Away

Apple recently sent out the following email to all users of iWork.com:
Dear iWork.com user,  
Thanks for participating in the iWork.com public beta. 
Last year, we launched iCloud, a service that stores your music, photos, documents, and more and wirelessly pushes them to all your devices. Today, there are already over 40 million documents stored on iCloud by millions of iWork customers. Learn more about iCloud 
With a new way to share iWork documents between your devices using iCloud, the iWork.compublic beta service will no longer be available. As of July 31, 2012, you will no longer be able to access your documents on the iWork.com site or view them on the web.  
We recommend that you sign in to iWork.com before July 31, 2012, and download all your documents to your computer. For detailed instructions on how to save a copy of your documents on your computer, read this support article at Apple.com 
Sincerely, The iWork team
As you may know, iWork.com is what we originally started using as a way to share Keynote and Pages projects from the iPad back to the computer since they would not transfer to Dropbox.  We have since moved on to using student email accounts for the iPads so the students can email their work directly you rather than using iWork.com as the middle ground.


If you are still transferring student work from Pages and Keynote using iWork.com, you will need to log in to the account and retrieve your documents.  Please contact your campus technologist if you need help with this process.
Another storage solution is being worked on for next year so email will not be our only option.
