Education is one of the elementary things required to bring about a positive change in a person’s life. A human cannot attain full heights until and unless he is fully educated. But quality education is still a dream for many because everyone don’t have access to it. Moreover education system has faced numerous challenges due to scarcity of budget and resources since ages. The challenges to education system include the need of tools that offer more versatility and can adapt to new developments, andmobility, which is both a growing reality and a requirement for teachers and students.Cloud computing, though a relatively nascent technology, has proved to be revolutionary in past few years. It is a type of computing that relies on sharing computing resources rather than having local servers or personal devices to handle applications. The term “cloud” in “cloud computing” is used as a metaphor for “internet”. Its principle is to provide IT resources in the form of services that users can call on and consume “on-demand” via some network and only pay for their actual consumption. Cloud computing is currently being used in various fields and education is one of them.It has offered a gamut of benefits ranging from lowering the costs by sharing equipment and solutions to flexibility in implementing teaching content. Cloud computing allows sharing of education resources in such a way that it promotes dynamic exchanges and participation between teachers, students, their social network and parents.
