Hossain Masud, Md. Anwar and Huang, Xiaodi and Yong, Jianming (2011) Enhanced M-learning with cloud computing: the Bangladesh case. In: CSCWD 2011: 15th International Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work in Design, 8-10 Jun 2011, Lausanne, Switzerland.

Abstract

M-Learning is a learning model that blends wireless technology and mobile computing to educate the world. It is convenient in that it is accessible from virtually anywhere. However, it faces the challenges such as the high cost and lack of sufficient education resources. This paper presents a new Mlearning architecture that is enhanced by cloud computing. Relying on this architecture, we can reach the huge number of students over diverse terrains in a timely and cost effective manner, by using the mobile technology as a supplement to the existing learning technologies. A new learning framework for Bangladesh is also described that makes use of mobile phones combined with cloud computing to achieve cost-effectiveness.
