Cloud Learning

Employing essentially limitless web-based storage and services (the “cloud”) to enhance the learning experience, Cloud Learning has the potential to provide unprecedented accessibility, continuity, extensibility and integration.  Most analysts believe that humanity’s move from computers to the cloud will be more transformational than our recent move from paper to computers.

Opportunity Statement

While it may seem that most venture opportunities in Cloud Learning are restricted to medium to large organizations,  there are actually innumerable opportunities for individuals and smaller organizations to apply emerging cloud-based services and tools in innovative ways across all learning domains.  A particularly interesting component of this topic is the emergence of “personal clouds”.
