An Action Research Study towards the Use of Cloud Computing Scenarios in Undergraduate Computer Science Courses

Heleno Cardoso da Silva Filho, Glauco de Figueiredo Carneiro

Abstract

Cloud computing has been a successful paradigm in its goal to provide remote computing resources in a competitive and scalable way when compared to traditional computing scenarios. Companies have a growing interest in migrating and using cloud services. However, the literature has reported difficulties and challenges faced by companies while migrating their assets to the cloud. One of the possible reasons for this is the difficulty in the identification of qualified professionals to support companies to plan, perform and monitor the migration of their legacy systems to the cloud. This paper presents an action-research study analyzing the inclusion of cloud computing scenarios in the System Analysis and Design and Operating Systems undergraduate courses at Salvador University (UNIFACS). The results of the action-research study provided initial evidence that cloud computing resources integrated to the contents of the aforementioned courses can contribute to motivate and engage students in activities. In addition, the knowledge and experience gained by these students can improve their qualification to facilitate access to the labor market.
