Is cluster sampling a form of random sampling?

I learned in my stats class that cluster sampling is when you divide the population into subgroups called clusters, pick some of the clusters randomly, then select every member of the chosen clusters to be included in the sample. Is this a form of random sampling? For reference, my teacher also said that random sampling is when every member of the population has the same chance of being selected for the sample.
