Many applications on finance e-learning such as derivatives valuation, portfolios management, scenario simulation, index databases and more can all be accessed from Browser-based browser via mobile platforms or desktop computers. This paper presents a structure of cloud service-based case study for providing a virtual cloud learning environment which combines a wide range of technology and tools to create involve research method for finance e-learning education base on previous studies. The environment is intended for designing and simulation of educational content as well as creating a platform for exploring ideas. The system allows exchange of educational content; integrate different teaching approaches, collaborative learning and easy to learning and teaching under the web service-based cloud environment.

Keywords: finance e-learning; cloud services; virtual environments; cloud learning; mobile platforms; cloud computing; electronic learning; online learning; finance education; mobile communications; derivatives valuation; portfolio management; scenario simulation; collaborative learning.
