Mount Holyoke College has registered as a participant in Amazon's AWS Educate program.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) Educate is an educational program designed to encourage learning about cloud computing systems and services by making it easier for faculty to have students experiment with AWS in their classes.
The key components of the program are:
The LITS HelpDesk can help you signup with Amazon but, as with any coursework, support for AWS Educate and Amazon Web Services would generally come from faculty and/or an academic project team as part of your class; Or through Amazon's self-service learning tools and support options.
Mount Holyoke's registration in the AWS Educate program means that if you are using AWS in your class or for an academic project, you will be eligible for free credits towards the various AWS products.
It is important to be aware, however, that you must create and manage your own personal AWS account in order to use the services. Amounts used beyond the free credits will be charged to the payment information you give Amazon upon sign-up.
