  • Before cloud computing, computing of any kind was just plain expensive! You had to purchase servers (all different kinds to store and manage your data systems), you needed 24hr technical support IT staff, and you needed to either purchase or develop and build your own apps. Cloud computing addresses these 3 major components of traditional computing (infrastructure, platforms and software) by offering all of these as services. Traditional business applications like those from MICROSOFT and ORACLE have always been too complicated and expensive. They need a data center with office space, power, cooling, bandwidth, networks, servers and storage. Think entire rooms. Then think complicated software stacks to run them….

  • It is not without its disadvantages. Chief among these is the difficulty of securing intellectual property and personal and financial information. Is it dangerous? Well it depends. Cloud computing services are shared all over the world and could be shut down at any time. Any problem in a cloud computing server can affect clients connected to that server. There are security risks involved in sharing data. Reliability? Well if your internet connection goes down you won’t have access to your most important files. Speed? The efficiency of your infrastructure and internet connection will affect performance.

    • 3. The truth is…
      Individuals are using it without even being aware as they share Internet accessibility to obtain the information they need, when they need it.

    • 4. How come?
      Many of us depend on the www to bring information to our fingertips, to put us in touch with people & events across the globe instantaneously.
      These powerful online experiences are possible thanks to an open web that can be accessed by anyone with a web browser, on any Internet connected device anywhere.

    • 7. Cloud Computing
      The abstract image of the cloud refers to the Internet. ( Eureka!)
      Cloud computing is Internet-based computing. Services and software are provided over the Internet ( the cloud).
      Cloud computing tools are available anytime, anywhere from any device connected to the internet.

    • 9. The basic concept is, using software via the Internet instead of installing it on your computer!..or your pda…or your iPad..or…
      Software and services are delivered over the web through a browser, with no server or client software to install.
      From the cloud, you can find and access the programs that you want to utilize. Shared resources, software and information are provided to computers and other devices based on requirement .

    • 11. There are 2 main parts: front end & back end.
      Front end: what the user sees (involves the network and apps being used)
      Back end: the computers, data storage services and servers that compose the cloud.

    • 12. Front End
      Every web application you have ever used is based on cloud computing because when you connect to one of these services you’re really connected to a group of servers somewhere out there on the internet!
      Can you name some apps?

    • 13. Why is it different?
      Well think about life before the cloud…

    • 15. Now the Cloud…
      addresses these 3 major components of traditional computing, i.e. infrastructure, platforms and software by offering all of these as services.
      IAAS –Infrastructure as a service
      PAAS- Platform as a service
      SAAS- Software as a service

    • 16. The provider (like Google, Salesforce etc.) hosts the software on the internet which is accessed by customers who use resources as a service paying only for what they make use of.

    • 18. The technical workings of Cloud Computing in simple english
      12/1/2010

    • 19. Pros?
      Economic $$$
      Low cost to access technology
      Cost dispersion
      Gives the small and medium entities an opportunity to access technology as a resource
      Great alternative in a recession
      Convenience  …Web Appiness
      Access to data from anywhere as opposed to traditional desktop applications stored on a hard drive
      Always get the latest version of any app. It is updated automatically without you having to intervene.
      Works on every device with a web browser. The web is an open platform who cares if it’s a Mac or a PC?
      Safer as web apps run in the browser. There’s a separation between the application code and the computer’s code and overall performance.

    • 20. What could this all mean for Education?
      12/1/2010
      Candice Sankarsingh & Lauren Sicinski
      20
    • 21. Reduction in costs associated with all education, including higher ed. Administrators can get more value for their $$$ spent on investments in educational improvements.
      Is a user-defined experience. The consumer rents only those services that are used instead of paying for a large infrastructure. Services are fluid, able to be added or reduced, therefore cost effective.
      12/1/2010

      21
    • 22. Flexibility ( a student in a low to middle-class school district can have access to the same educational tools)
      Impact on online learning (access to learning materials, instructors, labs, and libraries as students in top-ranked campus universities)
      Innovative new technology for gathering information quickly and easily. Instructors & students who have universal access to the materials they need are STEPS AHEAD of traditional learning & teaching methods.
      12/1/2010
      Candice Sankarsingh & Lauren Sicinski
      22
    • 23. Supports mobile learning ( a learner can access resources both to read and write to applications virtually anywhere, using devices such as a laptop, mobile phone, PDA, tablet PC,)
      Learners are able to progress at their own pace, review material, upload comments to class boards, send assignments digitally, check updates on assignments from any location that can internet access. They can multitask, easily moving between applications. They can digitally tag objects on a geodigital grid and ask questions about them, take pictures, post notes and receive answers.

    • 24. Cloud computing= Collaborative learning?
      Collaborative learning among class members is accommodated by use of the cloud for study sessions and work on projects
      Here’s what google! Had to say

    • 25. Okay, what’s the catch?
      Who controls the data?
      What about individual privacy?
      Security of the data?
      Reliability?
      Liability for your writing
      Governmental interference using surveillance?

      (Use Google forms)
      (Use Xtranormal to animate answers to life)
      (Present the videos)
