The webcast sessions focussed on the issues for those who have an operational responsibility in terms of delivering cloud computing services for colleges and universities.  The content was also aimed at those who are making decisions with regard to adopting particular cloud computing services.


The objective of the webcast was to clarify for colleges and universities the legal obligations that arise when making use of cloud computing services and to ensure that legal issues don’t impede innovation.  The webcast also included the opportunity for delegates to question FE and HE sector specialists in the delivery of cloud computing services. The webcast sessions were recorded and will be available shortly as learning resources on the JISC Legal website.
