With the popularization and development of cloud computing technology and intelligent terminal, the “Educational Cloud Service + Cloud Terminal” (referred to as the “cloud + terminal” mode) mode, which is composed of educational cloud service and intelligent learning terminal has opened up a new teaching scene and learning situation for digital teaching materials. First of all, this paper introduces the educational cloud service system and the “cloud + terminal” model; Then, on the basis of deeply analyzing the elements and characteristics of personal learning environment, this paper constructs a model of personal learning environment oriented to digital teaching materials under the mode of “cloud + terminal”, at the same time, the paper also introduces its main functions; Finally, the paper designs a learning system for the digital teaching materials under the mode of “cloud + terminal” from four aspects, that is, the terminal equipment, the tool software, the contents of digital teaching materials and the educational cloud service platform. The research contents of this paper have reference value and guiding significance for the design, development of digital educational materials and the construction of learning environment.
