Abstract

In the modern era, cloud computing is an emergent research area, spanning over multiple disciplines. It is a new service-centric technology that reduces the cost of resources by leveraging the efficient pooling of on-demand, self-management computer-generated infrastructure, consumed as a service through the Internet. Mobile network integrated with cloud computing to create new technology that is mobile cloud computing (MCC) to bring benefits for mobile users. Cloud computing popularity is rising by leaps and bounds in all domains like IT, business, electronic media, communication, academia, scientific research and education, etc. In present era; cloud computing has changed the traditional education systems to modern education systems like e-learning. E-Learning is the virtualized distance learning system; which is an electronic communication mechanism over the internet. In this paper, we will explore “is mobile cloud computing useful/efficient for E-Learning,” the most recent advancement of mobile cloud computing. We join the several new technologies to reach this goal. We are going to summarize present features and characteristics of E-learning and also look at the idea of E-learning through mobile cloud computing (MCC). We will also discuss the mobile cloud computing architecture (MCCA) and explain the design of mobile cloud computing stage by merging the feature of E-Learning.
