Traditionally we used programs that were installed on our computer's hard drive. We also saved work in folders and files on that same hard drive. With cloud computing your work is sent to huge banks of computers where it is run on web-based programs, before the output is sent back to your computer
To understand cloud computing you need to understand the parts, operation and evolution of a computer which is covered initially. Then the concept of the internet, the cloud and accessing it are explained as is internet browsing. The practicalities of the most popular cloud storage apps then follow while the last chapters deal with web-based 'office' apps, cloud printing and local storage.
Simple non-technical language and clear step by step instructions with screen shots are used throughout and no previous knowledge of computers is assumed.
