Implementation and Evaluation of an e-Learning Architecture on Cloud Environments

Chao-Tung Yang, Wei-Ting Yeh, and Wen-Chung Shih

Abstract—In this work, we proposed an e-learning architecture based on cloud computing technologies. Also, we demonstrate how to construct a complete e-learning cloud containing 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. Furthermore, 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. This architecture contains a private cloud on local hardware resources and SaaS services powered by the external large-scale cloud services provider.

Index Terms—E-learning, cloud computing, virtualization, VM migration, live migration.
