Development of a Cloud based Mobile Interactive E-Learning Web Platform for Higher Learning
Abstract: In this paper, development of a cloud based mobile interactive E-learning web platform for tertiary education is presented. The conventional classroom teaching and learning process has posed some challenges to students because of the stress and risk involved to board public bus or car from their various homes and places of residents and converge in the school premises at specified times for lectures. The implication is that these students are always exposed to road hazards everyday transporting themselves from their different locations to school. Schools in rural areas are constrained by materials and teaching aid available, which can negatively affect the learning process. In order to overcome these limitations, Cloud based mobile interactive e-learning system is introduced to address the problems of the conventional teaching and learning process in the tertiary institutions. Now, students can arrange lectures with their instructors/lecturers from distant locations via video conferencing using internet based computers, android phones, tablets etc. and interact more effectively by sharing information and ideas with one another from their respective locations. The e-books needed by students for learning are stored in the cloud server and access given to them to download or read the materials/books from online. The algorithms and block diagrams were designed and the web application developed using php language. The developed web application is tested using lecturers and students web service platforms which enhanced the learning process and induced safety to the lives of our students.
