A Collaborative Community of Leaders: Cloud Computing in Education
The IBM Institute for Electronic Government and Social Business empower collaboration.
When your instruction collaborates with distinguished colleagues beyond your daily working environment, your participation in this broader community helps maximize the benefits of your investment. That's why IBM Cloud Academy offers guidance and sharing through collaborative themes and enables communication with the IBM cloud technology.
The IBM Cloud Academy uses the IBM IEG (Institute for Electronic Government) Collaboratory based on IBM Social Business™. Using this Collaboratory, members of the IBM Cloud Academy are able to interact and work on projects with each other and with members of the academy's IBM Technical Advisory Board. The IBM Technical Advisory Board for this collaborative work is comprised of members from across IBM brands, research and development organizations, as well as IT architects, who specialize in emerging cloud technologies and solutions. Together, the members of the IBM Cloud Academy community and its Technical Advisory Board work on themes that advance cloud community implementations and initiatives in education.

Powered by cloud architecture and hosted by IBM, the Social Business suite of tools offers comprehensive web-based collaboration and social networking capabilities. It presents software that extends cloud computing beyond institutional boundaries and outside of firewalls. Members of the IBM Cloud Academy are able to work together closely, no matter where in the world they may happen to be traveling. And with a full selection of integrated services, Social Business has a range of offerings that bring educators together.
