Application of cloud computing in teaching established the concept of cloud computing assisted education. The teaching mode in 21st century focuses primarily on learning, secondarily on teaching. And the way of individual learning is also transforming towards collaborative learning. Those transformations form the core concept of cloud computing assisted instruction. This paper reviews the development of computer-assisted education, and analyzes and discusses the process of building a cloud computing learning environment as well as a collaborative learning model."College Chemistry Cloud School"is also used as a case study for real world applications of the aforementioned environment and model. Its design process and implementation methodology are presented with the hope to help with cloud computing assisted education and research.

Key words: College chemistry, Cloud computing, Cloud computing assisted instruction, Collaborative learning
