About the Event

Education and the cloud

Covid 19 has kick-started a lot of businesses into stronger use of cloud services.  Many of us in HE and FE have been using some aspects of the cloud for quite some time.

This session seeks to consider education uses of the cloud and pass the experience on to those institutions that are seeking to make more use of cloud services.

This session will cover the technologies that are in use, some of the unique issues and benefits encountered only within the education environment.
