Cloud Technology Applied to Writing in the Classroom

Cloud technology has greatly impacted the business world for many years. The transition to more cloud-based services has become the norm in the workplace. Naturally, this transition has also been happening in the classroom as well. Many schools have thin IT budgets and fewer onsite integrations to consider compared to corporate IT. Transitioning to cloud services is the ideal solution for schools in many cases. Some of the biggest advantages created by introducing cloud services include a reduction in textbook expenses, hardware and software expenses, and having current information available in the classroom. Students and teachers greatly benefit from having up to date information and software available for everyone in the learning environment. Poorer schools have access to the same information and services that are available to affluent school districts. Schools enjoy the cost savings from cloud implementation by realizing substantial savings in their IT budget.
