The trends reported here are the result of the Campus Computing project, an ongoing research initiative (flip through the slide show on their page).

By contrast, by 'low cloud' they mean stdudent email, and by 'middle cloud' they mean calendar, learning management systems (LMS) and customer relations management (CRM) applications. Meanwhile, on OER, "Eighty-two percent of institutions say open educational resources (OER) will be an important source of course content in 5 years." Nice.
