Abstract

Geographically, Indonesia is vast and consists of various religion, ethnicity, and culture. The condition makes any challenges to deliver educational services equally. As we know, educational services in Indonesia centralized in Java. Indirect, it has been made digital divide and knowledge gap. These challenges is playing role as a trigger to bring on low quality of Human Index Development, Education Index Development, Global Competitiveness, and Quality of Life index. Therefore, in this study we proposed design of Cloud Education as an alternative solution to enhance educational services distribution. The study consisted of several stages including: identifying problems and needs, determine the service model, design of Cloud Education, implementation, testing, and last is evaluation. The results of simulation tests indicates that the educational stakeholder has many services models among others: (1) application services such as: e-Learning, e-Library, e-Lab, e-Academic, and e-Course, (2) data services such as: learning materials, library collections, scientific publications, student identity, lecturers profile, and higher education profile, (3) infrastructure services such as virtual storage. Meanwhile, all of services on Cloud Education can be accessed using any devices such as mobile phones, computers, and tablet computers. In the future, we would like implement this prototype in real world, discuss policy and regulation, and also study Cloud Education benefit in financial aspect.
