It is worth to mention that nowadays we observe an evolving interest for the acquisition and the exploitation of new technologies in the context of learning specifically the Internet. They are based on the use of approaches with diverse functionalities (e-mail, Web pages, forums, LMS, and so on) as a support of the process of teaching-learning. E-learning systems usually require many hardware and software resources. There are many education institutions that cannot afford such investments, and cloud computing is the best solution. Cloud computing is the basic environment and platform of the future e-learning. This paper mainly focuses on the application of cloud computing in e-learning environment.
