Software as a Service – e-Book

With all the talk about the ‘cloud’ and opportunities it creates for schools to re-think their ICT infrastructure, one of the terms that is also appearing in people’s vocabulary is Software as a Service (SaaS).

SaaS refers to computer applications that are delivered over the web as a service rather than being physically installed on school servers or individual desktops.

This morning I downloaded a free e-book from Tech&Learning titled “A guide to software as a service in education” which provides a very readable summary and introduction to what this is all about. While written for the US context, there’s plenty of useful information in here for those embarking on understanding what SaaS is all about.
