Abstract

Cloud computing has emerged to be one of the leading professional competences desired by modern day employers, especially in the computing profession. We use computing as an umbrella term that includes Computer Science, Information Systems, Software Engineering, and other related courses. The benefits and value proposition of cloud computing have made it a desirable course to be taught across computing curricular. However, teaching and learning cloud computing comes with daunting challenges that often discourage educators. As a result, cloud computing is yet to be part of the computing curriculum in a vast majority of higher institutions in the USA; thereby denying students the myriad career and employment opportunities peculiar to their peers with cloud computing skills. The aim of this panel therefore is to analyze the challenges of teaching cloud computing, proffer solutions to those challenges, and develop an approach that can be adopted by computing instructors who desire to incorporate cloud computing competences into their curriculum. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to learn and access resources provided by 'AWS Educate' for teaching and learning cloud computing.
