Abstract: 
The Internet Technology is at forefront of
transforming education and opportunities around the globe by
allowing different kind of interaction and innovation among
various educational institutes and students alike, all
participating in the global online innovations. In particular,
educators have realized that technology enhanced learning,
offers flexible and powerful way of accomplishing wide range
of opportunities that have been important and resourceful in
schools, such as gaining access to universal information
resources that relieve academic staff of their work load leaving
time for professional development and time to improve on their
studies and research output which have been so elusive for
sometime now. Extending this novelty and gain to the rural
settings raises lot of concerns and challenges that threaten its
sustainability to its core implementation. Cloud computing
brings wide ranges of computing power, innovations and shifts
in paradigms of Information Technology. This paper will
probe whether the promise of cloud computing could be
employ to enhance or mitigate the challenges poised to e-
learning implementation and sustainability in the rural setting
using descriptive research approach. The paper will inform
stakeholders of any gains or prospect of using cloud computing
to downgrade the e-learning sustainability problems that have
plagued the implementation of e-learning in the rural setting as
unviable future instructional offering.
