Abstrakt

Adoption of technology and Higher Education are two major driving forces, especially for emerging economies. Cloud computing is one such technology which is not only transforming enterprise businesses but also higher education. Adoption of cloud computing in the primary, higher and research-oriented education is playing an important role as far as ease of functionality, user support, cyber-security, on-demand scaling, time-saving, and costing are the concern. Education institutions should be encouraged and mentored very well for the adoption of the technology-based teaching and learning to improve and overcome their operational and academic challenges, which will be a win-win situation for all stakeholders i.e. Educational Institutions, Government, Technology Companies. This research article introduces a conceptual framework for the adoption of Hybrid EduCloud in higher education. This study is based on Ethiopia, one of the Sub-Saharan African country. The qualitative research methodology was adopted to formulate Hybrid EduCloud model and the five-step conceptual framework of cloud computing implementation strategies for higher education while quantitative research methodology was used for questionnaire survey in connection with five steps of cloud computing implementation strategy model. The result shows that this model can be an important contribution to boost cloud-computing adoption in higher education.
