In recent years, mobile learning(m-learning) which was included by V-learning(virtualized learning) advocated by College of Information Science and Technology in Beijing Normal University, has been realized as a high-efficiency way of learning. Not only in distance learning, but also in face to face and blended learning, m-learning can provide supports. However, with the increasing number of users, services, education contents and resources, ways of deploying m-learning are difficult to deal with some problems. This paper particularly focuses on three aspects of the troubles of m-learning, limited resources of the mobile devices, storage capacity of massive didactical materials and expensive investment of hardware and software. Then in order to solve them, cloud computing is to be introduced in. Cloud computing, whose distinct features are very appropriate for us to overcome the problems in m-learning, provides reliable, customized and QoS guaranteed dynamic computing environments for end-users. And then other advantages will be analyzed when the cloud technologies are used in m-learning. So the conclusion is cloud computing will be of great significance to the improvement of m-learning.
