Cloud computing will become an essential part of online education resources, according to one expert who stated that the growth of virtualisation will help to develop information providers in the learning field.
Jonathan Bishop, chair of The Centre for Research into Online Communities and E-Learning Systems at Swansea University, suggested that cloud technologies are a necessity for online subjects such as e-learning to grow and reach more internet users.
He said: "The holding of e-learning content in the cloud will enable faster deployment and sharing of resources.
"Cloud computing will become essential as the mobile platforms for e-learning become widespread.
The expert added that with the revolution of the cloud - just like to implementation of CD-ROMs in the past - will create a surge in popularity for industries such as distance learning.
Dr Mick Grierson, computing director of the Goldsmiths College Creative Computing Programme, recently commented that advanced computer technologies like the cloud could expel the need for traditional computing methods.
