Cloud Computing in Higher Education: Changing the Way We Provide Systems

Wednesday, March 10 | 12:30PM–1:20PM | Room 554
Session Type: Professional Development
Cloud computing is the new hot topic in IT. While many are talking about it, few actually understand what it is, how it's being used, and what benefits it could offer to higher education. This session will first provide attendees with a baseline definition of cloud computing before moving into an attendee-based discussion on how institutions are using the cloud. We will wrap up with a brief discussion on benefits of using the cloud. Participants will leave with a better understanding of what cloud computing is and ideas on how they can use it at their own institutions.
