On Mobile Cloud Computing in a Mobile Learning System



In the recent years, the nature of the Internet was constantly changing from a place used to read web pages to an environment that allows end-users to run software applications. Interactivity and collaboration have become the keywords of the new web content. This new environment supports the creation of a new generation of applications that are able to run on a wide range of hardware devices, like Mobile Phones or Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) and this development gives rise to Mobile Cloud Computing. Mobile Cloud Computing at its simplest refers to an infrastructure where both the data storage and the data processing take place outside of the mobile device. Mobile cloud applications move the computing power and data storage away from mobile phones and into the cloud, bringing applications and mobile computing to not just smartphone users but a much broader range of mobile subscribers.

In this work, Mobile learning system is designed based on electronic learning (e-learning) and mobility, within the context of mobile cloud computing. However, traditional m-learning applications have limitations in terms of high cost of devices and network, low network transmission rate, and limited educational resources; this cloud-based -learning application is introduced to solve these limitations. A mobile website is developed as well as a mobile application, this services which will be offered free, which will then gather relevant information in relation to the individuals’ topic of interest from a database located on a remote server and also web-links gotten from the cloud (internet) to expand the knowledge and understanding of the individual in the area of interest.
