Cloud Computing Moves to the Head of the Class

Education is graduating to the cloud for its computing power, security, and collaboration tools

  • More than any other technology, cloud computing lays the groundwork for high­tech education. The accessibility of information stored in cloud servers makes it possible for educators and students to access courseware and educational materials from anywhere. Data storage, backup, and security challenges are simplified in the cloud, and the reliability and affordability of cloud-based applications are friendly to budget-conscious institutions.
  • Cloud-enabled technologies help schools increase the efficiency and collaboration of administrative processes, including student recruiting, admission, and retention. They also enhance the operational effectiveness of campus operations and promote new avenues for learning, research, and teaching.
