JISC has commissioned a study at the University of Strathclyde to review the environmental and organisational implications of cloud computing in higher and further education.
The project team is keen to hear from HE and FE professionals who are involved in managing ICT, administration, e-learning and estates who would be willing to participate in a 20-30 minute telephone interview on the subject of cloud computing (where computing resources are delivered over the Internet by external service providers).
Overall outcomes from the study will be awareness of cloud computing in the HE and FE sector and its implications, a starting point for decision makers in the sector should they wish to adopt or increase use of cloud computing models and direction for JISC’s future funding streams should future work be warranted and recommended.
If you are interested in taking part in an activity review and/or one of the free workshops please email: firstname.lastname@example.org giving your name, institution, contact details and preferred workshop location. Please also include your interest in the project work if relevant (e.g. your institution is using cloud computing in HE/FE, you are not using cloud computing but would like to find out more, you are a provider who would like to find out about the needs of sector, etc.)
