Web Design Schools Could See Enrollment Thanks to Cloud Computing

As cloud computing continues to rise in popularity, web design schools are forced to face the inevitability of this important concept’s impact on their curriculum.

Cloud computing will do away with traditional database hosting, instead offering the option for virtual access to all resources for web designers and website administrators.

Web design schools understand that technology changes swiftly, however, and most are well-prepared for changes to curriculum. The Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, Georgia recently reported on the trending cloud computing technologies.

The Connector is a publication produced and operated by students at the school, many of which are studying web design and other IT related disciplines. In a November article, the school pointed out that cloud computing “could possible change the face of the IT industry”.

Not only is this new virtual options creating changes in the IT community, cloud computing is changing the landscape of business in general. This type of computing makes it possible for small businesses with strict budgets to afford more advanced web design concepts. In the future, this could result in more hiring in the web design industry, which will translate into increased enrollments in web design schools.

Cloud computing offers reduced overhead, options for hiring distant labor that might be more affordable, and removed the need for in-house IT departments. There is no cost for office space, insurance, or purchasing permanent equipment that it takes to make up an in-house data center.

For now, cloud computing is still under intense study because of the security risks posed through virtual accessing a server acting as a hub for entire project teams. Many web design professionals still create multiple back-ups of their work “just in case” something goes wrong with a cloud server. However, industry experts are finding new ways to create more secure cloud computing experiences and minimizing the risks involved with virtual web design and other computer programming work.
