Cloud Technologies

The Cloud Technologies Certificate course provides an overview of cloud computing technologies, develops a deep understanding of the models and classification, and helps you understand the landscape of technologies used in the cloud as well as those used by users of cloud services.

The Cloud Technologies class will include hands on workshop, multiple group projects and presentations and a final multiple choice open book online examination. This would require off-class group collaboration and preparation for presentation. The final group presentation and a multi-choice Q&A will be considered as the final exam for this class.
