Mobile LifeLong Learners on the Cloud

Jalel Akaichi, Firas Saidi

Abstract


Mobile professionals can find themselves in desperate situations when they have ambitions and will to improve their skills but have to face problems related to the fact of matching their work schedule with long life learning centres timetables. The goal of this paper is to propose a cloud computing solution for mobile learners. For this purpose, some software as services are designed and implemented in order to enable mobile learners to localize learning centres on the move, to match mobile learners’ free time with nearest long life learning centres scheduled courses, and to make reservation and use of learning resources while being in motion.
