Executive Summary

With the widespread adoption of e-mail, the Internet, and hosted applications for creating and sharing documents, the way in which students learn and educators teach is undergoing a dramatic shift. In most educational environments today, students complete projects using desktop software and submit them to instructors as e-mail attachments or hard-copy documents. Helping drive improved collaboration among students and between students and teachers is increased reliance on Software as a Service (SaaS), also known as "Cloud" computing or hosted services. SaaS takes full advantage of connective technologies like e-mail and the Internet and is part of an array of emerging Web 2.0 technologies that are transforming teaching and learning.
