With the advancement in technologies, the last decades have seen a sea change in the way people interact and communicate. For instance, contents, services and applications previously executed locally or on a local network are gradually finding its way to the cloud. As people and environment changes, so must education in order to be able to adapt and embrace to this paradigm shift in the educational landscape. Cloud-based education has thus arisen and has since gathered a lot of interests in the recent years. This paper thus describes the issues that need to be solved in order to arrive at cloud education, including integration, ownership, security and assessment, and offers a holistic approach to cloud education. It also put forward a new perspective in embedding mobile cloud education, an amalgamation between cloud-learning and mobile-learning domains, within a holistic intelligent campus environment.
