We are currently involved in the Digital Society, a context that is continuously evolving, supported by technology. Today, one of the most popular technologies is that related to cloud computing. This paradigm facilitates users accessing different kinds of virtual resources, providing them with a wide choice of tools and services to use at any moment in their daily life. Cloud computing has been applied in very different contexts, such as entertainment, health care, military operations, security issues, business and finance, human resources, etc. This Special Issue is focused on cloud computing applications for academic purposes: education and research. It is not looking for works related to the simple application of some tools but for innovations in this field. In particular, the Special Issue will consider works related to the application of cloud computing in learning activities; educational approaches to learn about cloud computing; the use of cloud computing by institutions to provide educational services/platforms; and cloud computing and security in education. This Special Issue is therefore focused on (but not limited to) the following topics:
- Innovations in the application of cloud services and tools in education;
- Assessment of the use of cloud computing in education;
- Learning about cloud computing application;
- Studies about trends in cloud computing application with academic proposes;
- Cloud-based learning environments;
- Educational institutions and the definition of cloud-based educational services and infrastructure;
- Managing information in cloud computing educational approaches;
- Secure cloud computing applications in education.
