Cloud computing is leading IT revolutionary technology (Gartner – Gartner Newsroom,2010) and considered as an extension to the significant achievements of grid, virtualization, Web 2. 0 and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) technologies and the convergence of these technologies. It uses the internet to deliver different computing services including hardware, programming environments and software while keeping users unaware of underlying location and infrastructure. This research paper discusses the potential benefits of cloud computing for delivering educational services in developing countries as well as sheds light on the ICT based initiatives taken and need of cloud based education delivery in the state of Punjab.
