Gustavo Gutiérrez-Carreón. Benefits of Cloud Services in Education: A Perspective of Database System Students. In First International Computer Programming Education Conference (ICPEC 2020). Open Access Series in Informatics (OASIcs), Volume 81, pp. 13:1-13:7, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2020)


Currently, there is a growing trend in the use of cloud-based services to support education. The importance of these services is that they are publicly available, allowing students to access these distributed resources most transparently. In this work, a model of satisfactory learning measurement is proposed to analyze the benefits, from the students' perspective, of cloud services related to education. A case study performed in a Database Systems course is presented; in this, under-graduate students can remotely manage database systems using cloud services. The benefits of an online access scheme compared to those of traditional database access are measured in terms of usability and the principles of cognitive load theory.
