This often burdens education practitioners, teachers and school IT staff, and even affects students. Cloud computing also appears as one of the most practical solutions to accelerate the system
online and hybrid education.

In this event, panelists and webinar participants discussed how to utilize computing technology that has been tested in various industrial sectors as an educational solution in the midst of a pandemic.

The use of metaverse technology in education is now referred to as eduverse. The discussion between the panelists and participants also answered how the massive adoption of cloud computing technology can accelerate
development and implementation of eduverse.
