To help researchers learn about cloud computing, Amazon Web Services (AWS) curated a list of no-cost, on-demand online courses tailored to researchers’ needs. AWS helps researchers process complex workloads by providing the cost-effective, scalable, and secure compute, storage, and database capabilities needed to accelerate time-to-science. Scientists can quickly analyze massive data pipelines, store petabytes of data, and share their results with collaborators around the world.

The AWS research team selected this list of courses from hundreds of available courses, specifically for researchers and research IT professionals who want to learn foundational cloud services. These online courses are available at any time to help users learn new cloud skills and services.
