Existing e-learning systems suffer seriously from the problems of scalability, maintainability, manageability, which can be overcome by merging e-learning with the cloud environment. Cloud technologies can satisfy the need of efficient e-learning system, resource management, user management and security for maintaining the secret information. Efficient delivery of the learning content can be done using Learning Content Management System. It is an environment where multiple users can create, accumulate, reuse, administer and deliver learning content from a central object repository. Learning Content Management System contains only the content description. So metadata for that content created which acts as an index for the learning content and holds details regarding author, location, format etc., Metadata is data about the data which is used for efficient searching.
