Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
Over the last 10 months, the Internet2 Cloud Learning and Skills Sessions (CLASS) program has helped facilitate an educational experience in cloud and research computing for more than 70 participants.
The goals of the CLASS program are to enable scientific discovery by building a broad research community able to leverage major cloud provider platforms to increase productivity and collaboration, empower IT support and institutional capabilities to champion cloud-based research, and engage the community through cohorts and activities that encourage knowledge exchanges.
