Ashford 3: – Week 2 – Discussion 2
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Client Server and Cloud Computing
Watch the following video: Changes to Computer Thinking: Stephen Fry Explains Cloud Computing.
In your own words, define client/server and cloud computing. Compare and contrast the two technologies, and provide examples to support your discussion. Identify which of these technologies is predominant in your organization. Your initial response should be a minimum of 300 words in length.
Guided response: Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts. How does your description of client/server and cloud computing differ from the post? How do the examples provided support the description of the technologies? Are they accurate descriptions? Why or why not? Your replies should be between 100 and 150 words in length and add depth and insight to the discussion. See the About Discussions link in the left-hand navigation pane of your classroom for more information.
