Abstract:


With the increase of people mobility in the globalization era, learning activity is tending to be more ubiquitous. To expand the communication between the teachers and the learners further than in class activity, mobile learning has been implemented in many learning system in the world in the recent days. Nevertheless, m-learning applications have some drawbacks, mainly in term of limited storage that driven limited resources to provide in education processes. To solve the problem, cloud enabled m-learning applications are proposed. This paper presents the existing applications of cloud based mobile learning applications, explores the advantages of using cloud enabled m-learning and design a low cost and low complexity cloud based m-learning application architecture. We deploy Google Drive API in android application that allows users to access teaching learning materials in the cloud.
