Abstract -
The adaptation of distance education by several University change the education scenario of India. With the help of this system it becomes much easier to provide education to the people from every corner of the world, where ICT plays a vital role in providing distance education. The increasing demand for ICT makes cloud computing an indispensable solution for many distance learning organization. Cloud Computing provided virtual resources and several other resources on-demand or pay per use basis. In this paper we try to suggest how cloud computing can be used as one of the ICT tool in distance learning education, which will have several benefits.
