Information Technology today is becoming an integral partner in modern higher education. We are witnessed of the changes that occurred by using of this technology in the classroom. But, despite the constant improvement of performance and price, the total cost of IT is still going upwards, mostly because of the need of teachers and students of the newer and more powerful machines, and audiovisual aids. Working in times of financial crisis and in conditions of steady growth needs, universities are facing with difficulties in providing necessary information technology (IT) to support education, research and development activities. In these conditions educational institutions very quickly embraced cloud computing strategies and acceded to their implementation to their own needs. Although there are still obstacles to the full implementation of the cloud model, the potential benefits greatly outperform other risks that arise. Changes that occur require a new way of managing with information technology and also staff with responsibilities. As this model is developed and the risks are lower, most institutions are more intensely to adopt and implement according to their needs and conditions. The purpose of this paper is to present alternatives to the use of information technology in order for university to improve the overall educational process by reviewing the methods of using the model in higher education.
