A Novel Approach for Combating Cyber-Security Issues in Cloud Based E-Learning in Kenyan Universities

Judith Chepkemoi Boit, Watson Musyoki Kanuku

Cloud based E-Learning is one of the booming technologies in Information Technology which brings powerful E-learning products with the help of cloud power. In recent years e-learning has grown into a widely accepted way of learning, and the usage of the global network is inevitable in every education process. Ubiquitous learning integrates wireless, mobile and context awareness technologies in order to detect the situation of the learners and provide more seamless adaptive support beyond formal learning process. In order to support modern pedagogical approaches, as well as a variety of heterogenic learning resources within courses, ubiquitous learning environments need to be based on a powerful IT infrastructure. At the same time, in order to be efficient, ubiquitous learning environments need to be based on learning management systems and integrated into an existing e-learning environment of educational institutions. Cloud technology has numerous advantages over the existing traditional E-Learning systems but at the same time, security is a major concern in cloud based e-learning. So security measures are unavoidable to prevent the breach of confidentiality, integrity and availability of information. Cloud based e-learning providers also need to satisfy the security needs of their customers and overcome various security threats which attack valuable data stored in cloud servers. So the survey investigated various security issues involved in cloud based e-learning technology with an aim to suggest solutions in the form of security measures and security management standards. These will help to overcome the security threats in cloud based e-learning technology.
