Future  of  Cloud  Compu:ng  in  Technology  and  Engineering  
Educa:on  
De7inition  of  Cloud  Computing  


Using  clouds  to  show  network  
diagrams  of  compu:ng  and  
communica:on  systems  


“Cloud”  is  metaphor  for  
“Internet”  


Subset  of  Communica:on  
Technology  
History  of  Cloud  Computing  in  
Education  


In  1950s,  ARPANet  used  to  send  messages  between  UCLA  and  
Stanford  


Number  of  distance  educa:on  programs  in  U.S.  doubled  from  
1995  to  1998  (Flowers,  2001)  


From  2000-­‐2008,  undergraduates  in  Distance  Educa:on  
increased  150%  (Radford,  2011)  


Internet  (Cloud)  being  used  by  increasing  number  of  schools  
and  Universi:es  today  
History  of  Cloud  Computing  in  
Technology  and  Engineering  
Education  


Used  with  increasing  frequency  in  1990s  (Flowers,  2001;  
Williams,  2004)  


Technology  and  engineering  educa:on  content  delivery  
increasing  on  Internet  (Ndahi,  2003,  2006)  


Development  of  Websites,  databases,  list  serves,  etc.  
con:nued  through  current  day  (Radford,  2011;  Schreuders,  
2007)  
Structure  of  Cloud  Computing  


Cloud  Clients  


So_ware  as  a  Service  


Pla`orm  as  a  Service  


Infrastructure  as  a  
Service  
Cloud  Clients  


Laptops,  tablets,  smart  phones,  etc.  


Cloud-­‐based  so_ware  


HTMLs  


PreZi  


Autodesk  


Adobe

Platform  as  a  Service  


Hardware  with  opera:ng  
systems  


Consumer  creates  so_ware  


Google  App  engine  


Cloud  Foundry  


Windows  Azure  
Infrastructure  as  a  Service  


Offers  computers  


Amazon  EC2  (Scales  capacity  up  &  down)  


Google  Compute  Engine  


Client  maintains  so_ware  
Cloud  Computing  in  Technology  
and  Engineering  Education  


Cloud  clients  –  laptops,  tablets,  smart  phones,  etc.  


So_ware  as  a  Service  –  data  storage  &  transfer,  etc.  (Graube,  
2004)  


Pla`orm  as  a  Service  –  So_ware  programming  &  development  


Infrastructure  as  a  Service  –  Very  useful  for  Technology  and  
Engineering  Educa:on  programs  for  scalability,  desktop  
imaging,  etc.  
Conclusion  


Cloud  compu:ng  very  useful  in  
Technology  and  Engineering  Educa:on  


Can  reduce  headaches  associated  with  
maintaining  equipment,  so_ware,  or  both  


Can  increase  capabili:es  via  site  licenses  
and  equipment  otherwise  not  affordable  


Teaches  students  about  the  future  of  
technology  and  engineering  uses  of  the  
cloud
