Call for Papers
The Second International Workshop
on Education in the Cloud (EC2016)
In conjunction with IEEE SOSE 2016, 29 March-2 April 2016, Oxford, UK

Education in the cloud

Cloud computing represents a major shift in the way we develop and deploy systems and services. In the educational sphere it provides the technical underpinning for the MOOC phenomenon, the incorporation of social media into curricula, and has accelerated the use of online learning resources in a variety of contexts. What benefits and risks are there for education in the cloud? What are the economics and limitations of adapting a cloud-based approach? What research is needed to better understand the potential and possibilities? In this workshop, we invite submissions that show research, novelty, insight or experience in the use of the cloud for educational purposes. Your research should highlight how a cloud-based approach can or could enable novel learning opportunities and overcome challenges and barriers in conventional approaches.
