Cloud AppsCloud Apps are applications and services that are hosted on a remote server rather than being installed on your computer or mobile device. These applications and services are usually accessed through a web browser, but can also have a local component installed on your device for access when there is no Internet access available.

Files that are stored or edited on a remote server are also able to be easily shared with individuals or groups – for either viewing or collaborative editing.

Below are some Cloud Apps that lend themselves to use in K-12 schools, as either curriculum or administration tools, have a free version, and can be accessed from any platform or device.
