Abstract

The use of IT based systems in mainstream education brings a particular focus to bear on security. When these systems involve the use of cloud, the challenge increases exponentially. There are a great many benefits to be gained from cloud use, and therefore, we argue that developing a suitable approach to provide a secure cloud based learning environment, which would be used to facilitate use for inclusive practice in mainstream education would be a worthwhile goal. We demonstrate how to develop such an approach, which we believe could provide a more effective approach than traditional technology based approaches.
