Cloud Solution to assist in Mobile Technology Learning

Mohammed Tabbara

Abstract


This paper will discuss the use of cloud-based computing solutions to assist in the process of mobile learning and teaching. The paper will go through the limitations of mobile technology and the areas where cloud solutions can assist to fill in the gaps. It will also discuss the student’s acceptance of such system and the tremendous opportunities cloud technology could offer to higher education students in terms of learning mobility and computer software accessibility. In this respect, the paper will investigate the usage of the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) that is recently adapted in the Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT) as part of its private cloud solution. This research will show how using cloud solutions in conjunction with mobile smart devices, such as the iPad, could technically and pedagogically facilitate the educational process both for students and faculty members. Concluding remarks will be presented and discussed at the end of the paper.
