Cloud based E-Learning is suitable for delivering sound and flexible education in Nigeria because, deployment of the system can be done very fast with minimum cost, it also lessen the burden of maintenance and support from the university. The Cloud based E-Learning architecture is made up of the following components, the infrastructure layer which is composed of information and infrastructure and teaching resources, Software resource layer which is mainly composed of operating system and middleware, Resource management layer is very important in achieving a loose coupling of software resources and hardware resources.
