Abstract

With the advancement of information and communication technology (ICT) nowadays education is transforming throughout the world. Cloud computing has added a new dimension to this transformation. Cloud computing is providing education as a service (EaaS) and is delivering education to the remote students. This service is making education available to the students at any place and at any time. However, the matter of disgrace is that the bottom of the pyramid (BoP) people is far behind enjoying the facilities of EaaS. Most of BoP people live in rural villages, or urban slums and shantytowns, and they have little or no formal education. Traditional education system failed to provide the proper education. Hence EaaS can be used to remove their illiteracy. However, they do not have any necessary equipment or money that is necessary for accessing EaaS. A portable box will design that will consist of all equipment necessary for having access to EaaS. This box will carry by a representative from door to door to provide education to the bottom of the pyramid (BoP) people which will help them to turn over their luck with better life without their internet facility and to spend a significant amount of money.
