Technology assisted learning has resulted in a global miracle. The Internet is often realized as a value-neutral tool that possibly permits individuals to overcome the limitations of traditional exclusive spaces and gain unhindered contact to learning.
Cloud computing and web services may have an important role to play in the classrooms of tomorrow. Lots of our nation’s schools suffer from low graduation rates because of insufficient infrastructure, shortage in staff and small classrooms. Cloud computing solutions can resolve some of these problems.
The cloud computing term was resulting from the way where Internet is frequently signified in network diagrams. Due to the circumstance it includes the existence of data centers that are capable to deliver services, the cloud can be realized as a unique access point for all the requirements approaching from the world wide spread clients Cloud computing involves of three layers:

1. Infrastructure as a service (IaaS)
2. Platform as a service (PaaS)
3. Software as a service (SaaS)

Based on the requirements, the clients can select one or more services provided. Hardware devices (such as regular PCs, notebooks, mobile phones, PDAs or any other similar equipment) or software applications (like web browsers, for example Google Chrome) can effectively play the role of a cloud client. The customers are renting or just accessing the needed handling capacity from the data center using the above stated client applications. The excellence of the provision becomes a crucial factor of the cloud computing success.
Maintenance and upgrades will become much easier for the entire group of people participating in the communication. The service provider will take care of all the basics, leaving schools, colleges and universities free to dedicate their resources towards other more important issues.
Successful IT systems progressively mandate more interoperability across platforms and flexible services that can easily develop over time. This has led to the occurrence of XML as the universal language for representing and broadcasting structured data that is free of programming language, software platform, and hardware.
Structuring on the broad approval of XML, Web services are applications that utilize standard transports, encodings, and protocols to swap information. With wide support across dealers and businesses, Web services facilitate computer systems on any platform to talk over corporate intranets, extranets and diagonally the Internet with support for end-to-end protection, consistent messaging, scattered transactions, and more.
Web services are found on a core set of standards that explain the syntax and semantics of software announcement: XML gives the common syntax for representing data; the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) gives the semantics for data swapping; and the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) gives a method to explain the competence of a Web service.
This paper presents an outline of the educational developments in open, distance, and technology-facilitated education that goal to reach the educationally poor populations . The question answered in this paper relates to whether, in face of these encounters, new technologies such as Cloud computing and Web services can help the poverty, literacy, social, and political difficulties in different countries with more emphasis on educationally poor populations?
