Cloud Concept for Implementing Multimedia Based Learning in Higher Education
Education technology is rapidly adapting various revolutionary approaches to providing an enhanced learning environment to the students. In many educational institutions, cloud-based services are being implemented to facilitate the enhanced e-learning solutions. Cloud implementation enables on-demand educational resources in various format, which includes, e-books, audio, video and other interactive materials to support enhanced learning. Cloud concept can transform the traditional way of teaching to engaging and interesting pieces of media to support teaching which is more accessible, even outside the classroom. This research paper highlights few similar approaches which are adapted to provide enhanced e-learning solutions by implementing some multimedia tools, for educational resources development. The study of the existing system will provide guidelines to incorporate changes, wherever required, to facilitate successful implementation of cloud-based services to support education technology.
