The Second International Workshopon Education in the Cloud-EC2015

In conjunction with 8th IEEE/ACM  International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC2015) 

7-10 December 2015,  St. Raphael Resort, Limassol, Cyprus

Education in the cloud

Cloud computing represents a major shift in the way we develop and deploy systems and services.  Virtualisation is used to make computational, storage and software resources available on demand as online services.  Major levels of abstraction are categorised as Infrastructure as a Service, Software as a Service and Platform as a Service.  Clouds are described as public, private or hybrid. Which models are useful for education? What benefits and risks are there for education in the cloud? What research is needed to better understand the potential and possibilities?  In this workshop, we invite submissions that show research in the use of cloud computing for educational purposes in areas including computer science, engineering, health science and social sciences etc.  Your research should highlight how new techniques and methods enabled by the cloud may solve challenges arising in those diverse areas. We welcome researchers and practitioners to submit pedagogic and technical papers which are related to (but not limited to) the following topics:



v Novel learning environments enabled by the cloud

v Cloud-based learning technologies

v Cloud support for mobile learning

v Cloud-based learning platforms

v Cloud-based assured information sharing

v E-learning in cloud computing

v Accessibility of Cloud-based education

v Learning analytics in the cloud

v Economics of cloud computing with reference to educational use

v Cloud computing support for collaboration in the education sector

v Privacy and security issues of using cloud computing in education

v Risks and compliance issues  of using cloud computing in the educational sector

v Identity and access management of cloud computing in educational sector

v Interoperability issues of Cloud-based educational resources

v MOOCs and big data for learning technology through cloud
