In recent years, mobile learning (m-learning) has been realized as a high-efficiency way of learning. M-learning provides supports in distance learning, face to face and blended learning. However, with the increasing number of users, services, education contents and resources, ways of deploying m-learning are now faced some serious 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 has many good influences on modern Chinese education. Cloud computing provides reliable, customized and QoS guaranteed dynamic computing environments for end-users, whose distinct features are very appropriate for us to overcome the problems in m-learning. And then other advantages will be analyzed when the cloud technologies are used in m-learning. So the conclusion is cloud computing will be both of great significance to Chinese education and the improvement of m-learning.
