Computing technology has improved recently in various ways, and computing services are expected to be a promising medium for use of information and computing resources in our emerging ubiquitous network society and cloud computing environments. Learning system is necessary to make the learning process more efficient for users. Ubiquitous based learning (U-learning) is a state-of-the-art mechanism in the education area, applying many types of multimedia resources and network technology today. However, U-learning is not enough to provide information and learning course process to users about sharing the learning resources and collaborating between user and teacher. In this paper, we propose a learning system in cloud computing environment that allows sharing the learning multimedia resources with users and collaboration on discussion processes about learning contents using SNS. It also provides user oriented learning processes through each learning unit.
