Introducing the Cloud in an Introductory IT Course
Woods, David M.
Information Systems Education Journal, v16 n1 p13-20 Feb 2018
Cloud computing is a rapidly emerging topic, but should it be included in an introductory IT course? The magnitude of cloud computing use, especially cloud infrastructure, along with students' limited knowledge of the topic support adding cloud content to the IT curriculum. There are several arguments that support including cloud computing in an introductory course. In light of this, several cloud computing activities based on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud offerings were added to an introduction to IT course. Student and instructor perceptions of the activities and the AWS service are evaluated and future plans are discussed.
