Mobile learning (m-learning) has been realized as an efficient way of learning. With the increasing numberof users, services, education contents and resources, however, how to deploy m-learning becomes problematic. As a promising technology to overcome the problems in m-learning, Cloud computingprovides reliable, customized and QoS guaranteed dynamic computing environments for end-users. This paper presents a new architecture for a mobile distance learning system in an extended cloud computing environment enriched with mobiles and wireless devices. This architecture can be applied everywhere where there is a need for intensive teaching and learning in higher education. The system architecture is described, together with the discussions of its possibilities and potential issues.
