ملخص: هدفت الدراسة الحالية إلى اختبار فعالية الحوسبة السحابية في تنمية مهارة الكتابة لطلاب الجامعة السعوديين. اشتملت الدراسة على (120) طالبًا وطالبة تم اختيارهم بطريقة عشوائية من جامعة القصيم، وتم توزيعهم على مجموعتين: تجريبية وضابطة. تم اختبار المجموعتين قبليًا. درست المجموعة التجريبية باستخدام النموذج المقترح بالاعتماد على الاستراتيجية المقترحة. بينما تلقت المجموعة الضابطة دراستها بالطريقة المعتادة. تم بعد ذلك تطبيق الاختبار البعدي. وكشفت النتائج وجود فروق دالة إحصائيًا بين متوسطي درجات طلاب المجموعتين في التطبيق البعدى للاختبار لصالح المجموعة التجريبية. ولم توجد فروق دالة إحصائيًا بين متوسطات الذكور والإناث في المجموعة التجريبية في التطبيق البعدى للاختبار. ‏

The Effectiveness of Cloud Computing in Developing Saudi-University Students' ‎Writing Skill

Abstract: The aim of this study was to test the effectiveness of cloud computing in developing the writing skill of Saudi-university students. The participants of the study consisted of (120) students, selected randomly from Al-Qassim University distributed between the experimental and control groups. Both groups were pretested. The experimental-group students were taught by using a proposed model implementing a suggested cloud-computing strategy. The control-group students had their regular writing classes. Then, the posttest was administered. Results indicated that there were statistically significant differences between the mean scores of the two groups on the post test, in favor of the experimental group. However, there were no significant differences between the mean scores of males and females in the experimental group in the post administration of the test. ‎
