Abstract

This paper considers the development of cloud-based learning environment with Windows Azure. It begins with the introduction of the cloud technology in general. Specifically, this paper discusses developing the cloud-based learning environment for IT education. As a cloud solution, this paper explores how PaaS service provided by Windows Azure is used to construct a learning environment for database development related IT courses. This paper examines how the tools provided by Windows Azure can be used to improve problem-solving, collaboration, and self-improvement. The last part of the paper presents a cloud solution on implementing the learning environment.
