The explosive growth of data and frequent application updates along with the increasing need to access data and/or applications from multiple locations has resulted in a need to improve the way data and applications are stored and served. Such a need has forced both companies and academic institutions to pay attention to cloud computing technology. Since education is a driving force for the continuous improvement of cloud computing, this study aims at identifying the factors that influence college students’ intention to learn about cloud computing technology. Specifically, the research question focuses on determining which factors drive students’ intention to learn the cloud computing concept. Four hundred and thirty-five (435) college students participated in this study. The results revealed several factors which influence students’ intention to learn cloud computing and thus were recommended as the factors academic institutes should consider before adding cloud computing into their curriculum.
