In this paper, we propose how to provide the ubiquitous e-learning capability from an e-learning cloud. By utilizing a smart mobile application combined with the Quick Response Code mechanism, we can offer the education provider, students and participant the ability to offer and obtain information or knowledge more quickly and easily in many e-learning application environment including schools, museums and exhibitions. We also expand our proposed e-learning cloud model to include the ubiquitous e-learning element that helps building the whole ubiquitous education cloud service environment. Also, we will demonstrate how to construct a complete e-learning cloud which contains the essential components for deployment stage and provide an example of the experimental application to further analyze its pros and cons against the conventional method. This architecture contains a private cloud on local hardware resources and a SaaS services that is powered by the external large-scale cloud services provider like Google. After reading the full papers, you will learn how to establish a fully functional e-learning cloud with low cost and low technical barriers.
