Building cost-effective, flexible and scalable education resources using Google Cloud Platform

Google Apps for Education has helped transform the way that technology is used to drive collaborative and flexible learning in Higher Education. Google Cloud Platform which includes App Engine, Compute Engine and BigQuery can be tightly integrated into any existing deployment of Google Apps and allows organisations to build custom functionality and services using the same underlying foundations that power Google’s own services. This talk will include a number of case studies to explore how you can build next generation teaching services on Google Cloud Platform to compliment existing use of Google Apps and Chromebooks. The talk will also explore the use of App Engine and Compute Engine to deliver highly cost-effective, flexible and scalable virtual computing labs.
