    It is very crucial for a Learning Management System (LMS) to allow teachers to measure the effectiveness, efficiency and experience of learning models based on objective criteria so as to come up with learning models that best fit the need of students. ASTRI Cloud facilitated eLearning system has a built-in tool for course design to help teachers to achieve this. Located in Cloud, ASTRI LMS has access to different learning data on students’ various activities to evaluate the learning outcome. To successfully exploit the resources in Cloud, ASTRI LMS should be constructed based on a multi-tenant architecture so that a single instance can deliver application to thousand of users. It also enables content sharing between schools and any content providers with different levels of access. Interschool collaboration can be easily achieved. The use of OAuth Authorization in the Content Bridge establishes trust between websites to minimize illegal hacking, and resolves issues with non-synchronized password change. By having LMS implemented in Cloud, a new and secured venue for publishers to distribute eContent to schools is created. With the inclusion of parent portal to track their children’s progress, Cloud service providers can offer new eLearning packages not only to schools but also to parents targeting educational use.
