Cloud Computing and Ubiquitous Support for Coaches

I am attending the Asian Conference of Computer Science in Sports (ACCSS) in Tokyo later this week.The conference is being held at the Japan Institute of Sports Sciences.

I hope to blog live from the Conference to share the presentations and discussions.

This is a link to the Conference wiki. This is the draft program. I have submitted a paper for the Proceedings.

The abstract of my paper is:

Cloud computing is transforming the ways in which sport coaches work with athletes and enrich their own professional development. Cloud computing enables “convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction” (NIST, 2009). The pace of change in cloud computing is such that many coaches need access to and the support of educational technologists to manage their engagement with the opportunities the Internet provides. This paper presents examples of coaches’ use of cloud computing.  It explores how the openness of the cloud raises risk management issues for providers of institutional networks. The paper concludes with a discussion of the transformation of cloud resources by coaches through the use of iterative ‘good enough’ approaches to digital repositories (Lund, 2009).
