Cloud Computing and Its Application to Blended Learning in Engineering
The education process in engineering means theory and practice, individual study, group-based projects or experimental work that involves equipment, simulation/emulation software packages and laboratory applications. In order to develop e-learning platforms for higher and postgraduate education in engineering, new methodologies should be taken into consideration: project- and problem based learning, virtual laboratory (remote access to laboratory infrastructure and task evaluation) or remote assistance for diploma projects and mobility grants. This paper presents new blended learning methodologies and the manner they can be customized for higher and postgraduate education in engineering by using the cloud computing paradigms.
