The new technologies enable individuals to personalize the environment in which they work or learn, utilizing a range of tools to meet their interests and needs. In this fairly short theoretical paper, the authors explore the salient features of Digital Scholarship (DS), and the nature and educational potential of \"Cloud Computing\" (CC) in order to exploit the affordance of CC in advancing the scholarship of teaching and learning in a higher education context. They argue that the cloud computing has a significant place in the higher education landscape both as a ubiquitous computing tool and a powerful platform that can enhance engagement among educators to understand and improve practice, and thus, increase productivity.
