Cloud computing promises to deliver both computing resources and immediate access to applications with minimal management required of the end user. However, even more promising is the way in which the cloud may facilitate collaboration between individuals, teams and organizations. It is in this area that the cloud may prove to be a powerful tool for the learning process for education is at its heart collaboration. In this paper we discuss an experiment we conducted to simulate a classroom environment using only resources available from the cloud. In addition to validating the feasibility of creating a virtual classroom we found emergent properties of the simulation that created learning situations that we did not expect and that are not readily recreated in the traditional physical classroom we are all familiar with.
