5. Offline Courses
Offline institutes, colleges, and universities are very good options to learn about cloud computing. But if it is practical in which each student get individual time and method to experiments cloud computing services such as virtual classroom setup, application deployment, cloud storage, API integration etc. But I don’t think there are many or anyone yet offline, providing such advanced training on advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, robots programming, machine learning, and API integration crash courses or degree, especially in the small cities. So it can be hard to find out one.
6. Knowledge and Certification from cloud computing services providers
Cloud computing services providers are the actual place in which you will get practical knowledge about cloud computing. They will train you on there own cloud computing products. And they will also provide you certification after completion of certain modules and tests. Expertise in cloud computing or certification in a specific cloud computing model and methods or in popular companies products very helpful to get a job/project related to cloud computing. And currently, there are less competition and more demands for cloud computing expertise.
7. Google Keyword Planner/Google Trends:
Google keyword planner & Google Trends is a very good tool not only for digital marketers but also for the researcher. information technology students can research anything related to cloud computing both on these google owned web applications or websites. Such as they can see in which country more people are searching for “cloud computing services provider”. or how many people are searching for “Cloud computing certification courses” and what are the trends in the specific country for keywords etc. Learning of similar things (using research tools) increase the power of students brain, and they will be able to think broad and widely about cloud computing.

Good and effective advertisements aware, educate and entertain targeted customers. So that they can get an education and pick up the right solution. (Exception: Everyone is right/wrong, no one or no company never be perfect).
How you can learn cloud computing? Learn and see advertisements, PPC ads, sponsored posts, viral videos and all type of solutions provided by anyone related to the cloud. Everyone has a unique idea and mindset about the clouds, it’s always better to gain as much knowledge as you can as an IT student or IT professional.
The learning can be like:
- What, why, who and how someone is marketing or selling cloud computing services. Students should know about it. So that they can learn, what exactly is the product/ Services and what is the actual cloud computing technologies.
- For example, the Google Search Engine. Google is the product and search engine (algorithm) is the technology. Teach or learn with similar examples of cloud computing.
- What kind of products are in more use by early birds of cloud computing and why companies are using cloud solutions.
- In which cloud computing business model small businesses investing more.

Follow, see, learn and understand or execute everything (Concesiusly) about cloud computing that you see on the internet, social media, videos, advertisements, tweets and from cloud computing-related webinars.
I know it’s tough to learn like a research. And also difficult to focus on each cloud computing advertisements. But if you’re a good student with dreams and desires, I don’t think you will have any problem to focus.
But always learn like you’re doing a research, not a course. Only research is the actual learning. And learning can be from anything and anytime. It’s also important that you should have more and broad knowledge of cloud computing business models more than your competitors and your boss.

Now after doing this, you will get the knowledge, about the benefits of learning cloud computing and the way you have to follow to build cloud skills.
10. Use the cloud computing services in your own project, business, and data center:
To learn by doing, cost more money and time than doing an online course for everyone. But one thing is different than learning from teacher and learning using any 1 business model of cloud computing out of 3 in business or your own project. Both have own adventures and excitements. And both are good.
Use any cloud computing services or product such as software as service, office 365 or platform as service for software development, and infrastructure as a service for data storage. Use it for learning, by signing up for the trial version of cloud computing service from any top 5 cloud computing services providers. Many are providing for free for a year.
