A Cloud Laboratory Framework Model for Teaching

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 146)


This paper summarizes 3 essential characteristics of cloud computing and analyzes the common problem of the experimental teaching of computer network course in China’s universities. It then puts forward a cloud laboratory framework model for teaching which bears the essential qualities of cloud computing and then describes 3 service modes of the laboratory and discusses those crucial problems to be solved in cloud course laboratory.
