What exactly is cloud computing? Isn’t it just a hyped-up marketing tool used to refer to everything from LMSs to Gmail? Well, yes and no.
Cloud computing is a broad term used to refer to SaaS (software as a service), Web 2.0, and other trends in which users rely on the internet (or the “cloud”) for satisfying all their computing needs. The ability to interact with your LMS on any computer, regardless of what programs the computer has, is an example of cloud computing.
The term itself may be obscure for some LMS users and Google mappers, which some might say serves as a testament to its uselessness. The fact is, we’re already using cloud computing in our everyday lives.
