As per the definition, the cloud comprises the data located in servers (computers having information that other computers can share) all around the world. Cloud has helped to globalise the data, which means that the data stored in one part of the world can be accessed in any other part of the world. Changes made to one file are not localised, and the same is reflected on every computer that accesses the file.
The educational system has revolutionised itself with such cloud-based tools. With many schools and universities collaborating with each other for greater interaction and exchange of knowledge, cloud-based tools are coming to be of great help.
Here are a few cloud-based tools that you should know of:
