Bronwyn Lapham, the senior technical officer here at eWorks, recently spoke with Keeli Cambourne of the Sydney Morning Herald for an article called ‘Learning is in the air‘. This article talks about an exciting cloud-computing project using the NBN in New South Wales.
“A classroom in the cloud sounds like the stuff of fantasy but for students and staff at TAFE New England Institute, the concept is only weeks away from becoming a reality,” introduces Keeli.
The project, called Cloud 9, takes “advantage of the opportunities afforded by access to high-speed broadband”, continues Keeli.
Bronwyn adds that “for rural and regional students and employers, […] Cloud 9 will make huge productivity improvements.” She then gives a more detailed explanation of the actual and potential benefits of the project for Australian education.
