Nowadays, almost all learning platforms are moving to the cloud. This is due to the fact that the cloud is an effective solution for both developers and end users.
For example, if you have an app developed in-house, you have to update it every time a new version of iOS or Android is released. This takes time and money, and often your apps might be out of date before they are even launched.
If you develop an app in the cloud, you can easily push updates to your users without having to worry about compatibility issues. Moving your online learning platform to the cloud also gives you many other benefits:
Faster loading times
No need for complex web hosting or configuring servers. Everything happens in the cloud
No matter how many students start using your app, you will never run out of resources (space and memory) as everything is handled by one provider
With a proper service level agreement (SLA), you can always rely on your online learning platform being up and running 24/7/365 no matter what happens with your internet connection or hardware failure at your end
If properly configured, data stored in the cloud cannot be accessed by hackers, as it is stored in encrypted form Global availability – with the cloud, you can access your data from anywhere in the world with an internet connection, so no matter where you are, you can always get to your learning platform
All you need to do is pay for what you use. If your app doesn’t have many users or doesn’t generate a lot of revenue, your monthly bill will be low. On the other hand, if your app is very popular and generates a lot of revenue, then you will pay more each month.
There are no hidden costs
Only what you use. You only pay for what you need. With so many benefits to moving your online learning platform to the cloud, it’s easy to see why almost all learning platforms are moving there. And as a learner and/or developer of educational apps, there is no reason not to do it!
