Pike, Ronald E.; Pittman, Jason M.; Hwang, Drew
Information Systems Education Journal, v15 n4 p52-68 Jul 2017
This paper investigates the use of a cloud computing environment to facilitate the teaching of web development at a university in the Southwestern United States. A between-subjects study of students in a web development course was conducted to assess the merits of a cloud computing environment instead of personal computers for developing websites. The goal of using cloud being to ensure that each student had access to the same high-quality learning experience. The study also sought to determine the extent to which cloud computing could ensure efficient use of students' time through eliminating hardware and software troubleshooting. Finally, the study sought to assess the extent to which the use of cloud computing would enhance students' learning experience.
