Abstract

Cloud computing is a new paradigm shift. Researchers attempts to find the factors that affect the adoption of cloud computing. However, few studies were conducted in educational institutons and there is ambiguity regarding the sitaution of the adotion of cloud based learning. The purpose of this study is to review, analyse and integrate the literature to present the state of the cloud based learning and to provide researchers with direction for future works. Mainly, the study were extracted from educational background studies. Search engine such as Science Direct and Emerald and IEEE were used to identify the studys. A screening process was conducted to remove the unrelated studys. As a result, a total of 32 Articles were considered suitable based on the context of this study. Factors were extracted from the 32 Articles and a frequency analysis was conducted to identify the most frequent factors that have been used by previous studies. The result showed that ease of use, usefulness and security are the most frequent factors. TAM is still the most widely used theory for the adoption of cloud based learning. Followed by TOE and UTAUT. The majority of the respondents are students followed by IT professional and decision makers. The study is limited to the included studys and the used search engine. Future works are recommeded to investigate the adotpion of cloud based learning using UTAUT and to incoporate security and trust.
