Cloud computing is one of the emerging education technologies that is impacting teachers and learners, inside and outside the classroom. But what is this ‘cloud’ anyway? Essentially, cloud computing means “storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer’s hard drive” (Griffith, 2016).
