The real promise of the Cloud Computing Paradigm (CCP) for education is the degree to which it expands the resource available to educators and magnifies their impact beyond the traditional classroom. Initially, CCP was seen as a cost effective means to deliver both computing resources and immediate access to applications with minimal management required of the end user. More relevant yet is CCP’s ability to facilitate collaboration between geographically separated individuals, teams and organizations and to create and maintain virtual immersive environments. Education is nothing if not a finely tuned collaboration between teacher and student, between the students and the world they live in and between students themselves. In this paper we provide a set of use cases that illustrate the ways theses capabilities can reconceptualise the definition of the classroom and extend the reach of the teacher.
