Abstract

 

This paper considers the problem of realization of e-learning infrastructure based on cloud computing at a university level. The primary goal is to develop a model of scalable and reliable infrastructure and services for e-learning. The proposed model is based on a private cloud realized within the existing infrastructure of a higher education institution. The model has been implemented at the Faculty of Organizational Sciences, University of Belgrade. The evaluation has been conducted within regular teaching and learning activities. The results of evaluation suggest that the introduction of cloud computing into e-education is feasible and it can greatly improve the efficiency of the system and achieve a win-win situation for both students and teachers.

 

Key words: Cloud computing, e-education, infrastructure for e-education.
