Free Cloud Platform credits for computer science courses in higher education.
These days cloud computing is everywhere and has also become an important topic in CS classrooms, especially in higher education. Now, University faculty in the United States can request free credits for their students to use during computer science courses in the 2016-17 academic year. Along with all the tools that are offered by GCP, the education grant program means that students can use it without providing a credit card for verification. Faculty who receive a grant, and the approval wait time has recently shrunk from weeks to days, will be invited to join a Google+ group of 150 professors who are also using GCP. It’s also possible for faculty and staff to demo GCP, by requesting a “zero student” course.
