CLOUD COMPUTING AS DIDACTIC TOOL IN E-LEARNING

The use of e-Learning systems in schools and universities in Mexico is increasing every day, because of the demand by people of low incomes, few available time or disperse and distance geographic locations are growing; Other important factor in education is the effort for content standardization of programs that specialize entities within universities are making to create course material for basic, intermediate and higher education. All these courses must be handled with strategic vision, so that sessions, exams and student follow-up are supervised by an automated and systematic centralized management. Allowing evaluations and feedback to be carried out in an agile and precise way, so that the students can correct their knowledge and advances with the help of a local coach.
Information technology, hardware, software and knowledge management are required, as well as the optimization of communication design, to provide a permanent link independently of physical location.
This work presents a strategy to use these technologies in conjunction with cloud computing techniques and tools that in an easy, fast and further all intuitive way for tutors and students, creates interest in the students for the material and generates a significant learning experience. This is done with an open e-Learning platform like Moodle, which allows several tools and techniques to create content, multimedia, text and exams, as well as dynamic and eye-caching elements for the user.
