The Tower And The Cloud: Higher Education In The Age Of Cloud Computing

By Richard N. Katz

Rating: 2 stars

This book is a collection of academic essays describing the changing relationship between IT and higher education in a highly networked world (the world of the “cloud”).

I find academic writing difficult, it’s often dry and difficult to read. Why use one word when you can use half a dozen? There was probably good material in there, but I don’t think I got much out of it.

If you’re interested anyway, it’s available as a free e-book under a CC (by-nc-nd 3.0) licence from http://www.educause.edu/thetowerandthecloud
