E-learning is the process of stretching learning or carrying instructional resource sharing gateways, to locations away from a classroom to another classroom, by using multimedia communications. The process of e-learning will cause some needs, such as i) high storage capacity systems for storing e-learning materials, ii) high network throughput for faster and efficient access of materials and iii) efficient streaming of e-learning materials which are in multimedia format. The first and second needs can be tackled by grid solutions and last one by embedding efficient video compression algorithm in grid. In this paper we proposed a framework called gBeL [Grid Based E-Learning] framework, which can fulfill the above said needs by adopting the grid technology and efficient streaming by reducing the video size by using video compression algorithm and embedding it in gBeL framework.
