There are few studies on how cloud computing may enhance students’ understanding of a specific subject in e-learning systems. In a research project awarded by the Microsoft Research Asia, we successfully developed an interactive simulator to facilitate our students’ understanding of essential concepts related to computer systems through live animations on a cloud computing platform. Essentially, we propose to integrate the latest technologies of cloud computing and learning objects into a flexible and interactive simulator to deliver powerful computing services for dynamic simulations of various computer systems specified as “reactive” models of learning objects on the cloud storage.
