Cloud Computing has recently re-emerged (in the 'popular' press - see BBC News' Tim Weber's article: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/10097450.stm) as the next generation computing paradigm.

Two principal questions:

1. What role does Cloud computing have in (international) blended learning?

1.a. Aren't we already using the Cloud in blended learning e.g. Wikis, so what's new from an educational perspective?

2. What's Your definition of the 'Cloud' in the context of computer hardware and software applications? (No meterological 'jokes' please... :-)

Any thoughts, discussions welcome.

Best wishes, Rob
