Security in Cloud based E-Learning
E-learning is a form of learning created by combining digitally delivered content with learning support and services. E-learning systems usually require many hardware and software resources. Educational organizations cannot afford huge investments to obtain these resources. Cloud computing is the best solution as it delivers the computing resources (hardware and software) as a service over the internet. It provides resources and capabilities of information technology via services offered by CSP (Cloud Service Provider).This paper mainly focuses on the influence of cloud computing concepts in an e-learning system. In addition to that, this paper also discusses the security threats in cloud based e-learning systems and the guidance provided by the eminent companies like Intel, Microsoft in solving these threats.
