You probably often see or hear the term Cloud, but what do you really know about it? What is it? Is it secure? Are you using it now? With our emphasis on Google's Cloud, this class will provide answers to these and many more questions you likely have. We'll discuss the pros and cons of using the Cloud, and you'll be introduced to examples of Cloud computing and the convenience of files and programs stored and accessed in the Cloud instead of a computer's hard drive. You may find you actually want your "head in the Clouds!"
