Academic Business World, 9(2), 39-45.

Cloud computing is one of the most talked about information technology topics these days. A

literature review reveals an endemic confusion of what cloud computing stands for. This paper

tries to shed light on why the term is so confusing. We try to find where the phrase cloud

computing came from and how it found currency in the IT community. We trace cloud

computing to early timesharing and Application Service Provider (ASP) in the last decade, and

posit a future of utility computing. This paper also provides a comprehensive definition of the

term and its main building blocks.

Feather, R., & Ricci, M. (2014). Use of ePortfolio presentations in a baccalaureate nursing

program. College Student Journal, 48(4), 549-558.

Portfolios are an essential tool for demonstrating professional accomplishments and

documenting professional growth in a variety of professions. Because of the competitive job

market for new graduate nurses in health care, the development and use of an ePortfolio can

be an essential tool for the application and interview process. The purpose of this paper is to

report the use of ePortfolio presentations in a course at Indiana University, Bloomington

campus. The implementation of an ePortfolio for seniors grew out of the previous practice of

students displaying their work in a three-ring binder. As technology progressed the portfolio

presentation practice grew into the use of a digital portfolio template, and then more recently,

the ePortfolio emerged and was implemented through the online course management system

offered by the university. Students were asked to write a reflection about their assignments, and

overwhelmingly choose the resume and portfolio assignments as the most valued in the course.

The experience is invaluable for the students as they exit the BSN program and launch their

careers as professional registered nurses.

development and evaluation of a social media toolkit. International Review of Research in Open

& Distance Learning, 18(1), 23-39.

While ubiquitous in everyday use, in reality, social media usage within higher education

teaching has expanded quite slowly. Analysis of social media usage of students and instructors

for teaching, learning, and research purposes across four countries (Russia, Turkey, Germany,
and Switzerland) showed that many higher education instructors actively use social media for

private purposes. However, although they understand that their students also use it for learning

purposes, and instructors sense the potential of social media in teaching, they mostly refrain

from doing so due to various barriers. In response, an openly accessible trilingual Social Media

Toolkit was developed which analyzes the teaching scenario with several questions, before

suggesting, based on an algorithm, the best matching class of social media, complete with

advice on how to use it for teaching purposes. This paper explains the rationale behind the

toolkit, its development process, and examines instructors' perceptions towards it.

approach to support faculty development in vocational education. Studies in Educational

Evaluation, 46, 61-73.

ePortfolio approach was designed to fit context of vocational education institute. Benefits

reported in two pilot studies include enhanced feedback and reflection. Faculty concerns

include time needed to learn software, reluctance to work online. Building ePortfolio increased

awareness of areas of improvement. EPortfolio use enhanced planning of professional

development. This article provides an account of the design, implementation, and evaluation of

an ePortfolio approach to faculty development and performance evaluation at a Canadian post-

secondary vocational education institute. The approach was piloted in two phases in 13

departments. Survey and interview data were collected and analyzed to determine adoption,

reception by faculty, and impact of the approach on faculty development. While adoption of the

approach in the pilots was limited, participants who adopted the approach reported collecting

more and different feedback, developing increased awareness of areas for improvement, and

planning their professional learning more explicitly. Further studies are needed to determine

what design elements of the portfolio optimally support professional development and

performance evaluation.

The article presents a study on the impact of joining a brand's social network on marketing

outcomes. Topics include the tendency for consumers' attitudes regarding brands and their

purchasing behavior to be predicted by preexisting fondness for brands rather than being

influenced by liking a brand on a social network such as Facebook.

Kertesz, J. L. (2016). Three key conditions to revitalize an ePortfolio program in response to

increasing regulation of teacher education. Australian Journal of Teacher Education, 41(8), 102-


This paper describes a study undertaken within the education faculty of a mid-sized university in

response to the recommendations of the Teacher Education Ministerial Advisory Group

(TEMAG) (2014) that initial teacher education (ITE) graduates emerge with an evidence-based

professional standards-focused portfolio of teaching competency. In concluding that current

teacher educator usage of, and attitudes to, ePortfolios limit the capacity of this particular

faculty to respond to this challenge, the paper proposes three critical conditions to revitalize a

stalled ePortfolio program and prepare for an increasingly demanding future. In sharing this
experience, the paper seeks to support discussion of how teacher educators can respond best

to the professional portfolio challenge in an environment of increasing regulation.

Roberts, P., Maor, D., & Herrington, J. (2016). ePortfolio-Based learning environments:

recommendations for effective scaffolding of reflective thinking in higher education. Educational

Technology & Society, (4), 22.

Introduction In recent years, the increased use of electronic portfolios (ePortfolios) has seen the

enhancement of the affordances these programs provide. No longer confined to the role of

"evidence repository." In addition to providing a useful repository for learning products,

ePortfolios provide enhanced opportunities for the development of advanced learning skills. It

can be argued, however, that ePortfolios are not being implemented effectively towards fulfilling

this important function. This paper presents an investigation of an ePortfolio environment that

scaffolded the learning of pre-service teachers. The environment was embedded within the

PebblePad platform and utilized the Blog function to provide students with activities that were

designed to enhance and support the skills and dispositions required to undertake action

research. Prompts were provided to students to scaffold the completion of an action research

project and provide additional activities that supported the enhancement of reflective thinking.

The research study utilized an eLearning Lifecycle that provided a cyclic framework of review

and implementation. The purpose of this model was to identify design principles for future

iterations of ePortfolio-based learning environments. Findings suggest that the prompts and the

ePortfolio environment were effective in scaffolding students' reflective thinking. Additionally,

design principles are suggested to ensure this research has both practical and theoretical

significance for implementation in similar environments.

differentiations. International Journal of Education & the Arts, 17(19)

This paper reports the findings of a project that investigated uses of electronic portfolios

(ePortfolios) in the creative and performing arts at four Australian universities and raises four

significant areas for discussion: engaging technologies as an ongoing requirement of planning,

delivery and evaluation of teaching and learning in higher education; ePortfolios and their

implications for curriculum planning; the influence of ePortfolios on learning, self-awareness and

reflection; and differences in ePortfolio expectations and uses between the varying

specializations of music study in higher education. Identifying marked differences between the

four higher education institutions in this project and their applications of ePortfolio work, our

discussion supports the hypothesis that ePortfolios cannot be applied generically across the

arts; rather the ePortfolio requires qualification in expectations, roles, applications and

theorizations. The paper makes recommendations for higher arts educators and highlights

some of the strategies that heighten the development of professional practice and related

governance, audit, and assurance. Journal of Information Systems, 30(3), 173-189.


Cloud computing services are finding rapid adoption as organizations seek cost reduction,

technical expertise, flexibility, and adaptable mechanisms to attain advantages in fast-moving

business environments. The related considerations of governance, audit, and assurance of

cloud computing services might be inadvertently overlooked in a rush to adopt these cloud

services. This paper focuses on cloud computing governance and audit issues by presenting

research questions informed by both practice and research. A cloud computing ecosystem is

presented and an IT Governance framework (Wilkin and Chenhall 2010) is referenced as a

means to structure research questions. Key issues of risk, security, monitoring, control, and

compliance should be considered early in the cloud services decision process. The tight

coupling of intercompany operations between the cloud client and cloud provider(s) forms an

interdependent, operationally coupled ecosystem. Planned governance is needed to achieve a

well-governed, functional, and secure cloud computing environment. The audit role is
complicated when the organization's financial data and/or critical applications are hosted

externally with a cloud service provider that may use other cloud service providers.

Warren, C. (2016). Social media and outbound ticket sales. Journal of Applied Sport

Management, 8(4), 49-62.

This paper examines current implementation of social media strategies by ticket salespeople. A

sample of 126 ticket sales professionals across professional, collegiate, and minor league sport

responded to a survey measuring social media usage rates across a variety of platforms, social

media use throughout the sales process, and sales performance. Results indicate that overall

ticket salespeople are not incorporating social media into their regular sales initiatives.

However, top performing sales professionals do tend to use social media more regularly than

baseline ticket sales representatives when approaching and discovering the needs of their

customers. Given the rise of social media as a business-to-business communication medium,

ticket sales managers should consider incorporating more training and empowering their

salesforces to leverage social media to facilitate greater sales success.

Social media has gained great attention in today's society as an important tool for people to

share their views, feelings and emotions at a faster pace. Not only the general society but the

professional institutions too have been impacted by its usage whether for their recognition,

branding or establishment in the market. The present paper focuses on the role of social media

communication by educational institutions in this digitized world and shows how it is a double-

edged sword.

cloud computing environment. Journal of Korean Society for Internet Information, 17(5), 67-74.

Distributed agile software development faces difficulties for instance lack of visibility across

development and delivery processes, complex and disjointed development processes, inability

to capitalize on business opportunities, lack of communication agility between disconnected

owners, development teams, and users or clients. However, these difficulties are solved with

the help of cloud computing services. This study proposes a framework to provide a skeletal or

structural environment for distributed agile software development in cloud computing

environment. The framework guide towards the best tooling to deliver a consistent, automated,

governed, and unified agile software development process with reduced technical debt, and

minimized project backlog. In addition to this, the study highlights the benefits of cloud

computing in agile software development.
