Cloud Computing in the Design of Learning Management Systems: A Way to Provide Equity in Access to Centralised Learning Resources

Anthony Mutua Nzioki

Abstract: Secondary schools are mainly located in rural areas hence are isolated geographically and socially. Thus they face a number of problems in ensuring quality curriculum delivery. Problems like lack of teachers, inadequate teaching and learning resources as well as poor quality teaching among others is a common phenomenon in developing countries. They are therefore disadvantaged as far as learning resources are concerned compared to urban areas. The governments in such countries are working very hard to raise the quality of education and also to expand access yet the scarce resources are limiting this good move. Hence the need to look for an equalizer as far as provision of resources and quality curriculum delivery is concerned. This survey focuses on the design and development of improved Learning Management System (i-LMS) software to enhance learning through sharing of resources by all schools so as to ensure a uniform access to learning resources using the concept of cloud computing.
