Abstract

The technology revolution has its strong impacts on different fields and industries. E-learning is one of those fields that is dramatically affected and changed over the previous years. Cloud computing and Web 2.0 features (i.e. blogs, Wikis, etc.) provide great opportunities to move e-learning to a new era. Different initiatives are established based on employing the cloud and Web 2.0 capabilities. This paper highlights the limitations of the contemporary initiatives. The paper introduces a framework for an open learning environment called Open Learning Sky. The aim of the proposed learning environment is to provide learning in more open, flexible, adaptive and interactive format.
