Abstract

Advances in technology offers new opportunities in enhancing teaching and learning. The new technologies enable individuals to personalize the environment in which they work or learn, a range of tools to meet their interests and needs. In this paper, we try to explore the salient features of the nature and educational potential of 'cloud computing' (CC) in order to exploit the affordance of CC in teaching and learning in a higher education context. It is evident that cloud computing has a significant place in the higher education landscape both as a ubiquitous computing tool and a powerful platform. Although, the adoption of cloud computing promises various benefits to an organization, a successful adoption of cloud computing in an organization, particularly in educational institutes requires an understanding of different dynamics and expertise in diverse domains. This paper aims at a roadmap of Cloud Computing for Higher Education (CCHE) which provides with a number of steps for adopting cloud computing.
