Before cloud computing, computers required numerous programs for day-to-day operations. Upfront purchases were costly, as were the demands on time for installing, configuring, testing, running, and securing all these programs.

Students can use these devices for academic coursework, research, homework, and team projects. The one-to-one use of personal computers, laptops, netbooks, handhelds or tablets in schools is gaining national momentum and transforming our education process. Learn More.
