Cloud computing has been identified as a new paradigm in the field of computer networks services and has changed the way businesses interact with IT services by offering a strong base of virtualized services in both hardware and software platforms while delivering different on demand business models. This paper presents a new model of Cloud computing combined with E-Learning in schools and universities aiming to understand the model and its potential benefits and pitfalls. The proposed model will allow the E-learning environment at schools and universities to share their computing resources at minimum cost.
