Technology evolvement has a high impact to teaching and learning strategies. Virtualization in computing technology has widened user's perspective on communication. Communication seems to be one of the important factors that contribute to the effectiveness of content delivery in terms of production of quality learning outcomes. Users who actively involve in communication either asynchronously or synchronously become constructive and critical by arousing curiosity which in turn will lead to students becoming more innovative and independent. The use of cloud computing in teaching and learning have given advantage to learners in constructing their own content. The aim of this study is to observe and examine the pattern of communication between eight postgraduate students in Master of Instructional Design and Technology (MIDT) program. This study also aims to clarify the status of teaching and learning activities in cloud computing in terms of the models and approach. The simulated learning environment embedded into cloud computing strategies is design according to the working definition. The student undergoes the simulated learning environment. The pattern of communication between students is studied and analyzed to gain insight on the number of communication between student and student, and between student and lecturer. The pattern will also reveal the number of interaction between nodes through MyVLE, Edmodo, Skype and email. This study will report the quality of communication as part of the learning outcome derived from the learning approach. It will also report the seriousness of the students and lecturer in participating in online discussion. The communication outcomes will lead to the synthesis of all information provided in simulated learning environment (SLE) embedded in cloud learning environment (CLE). The result of this study will assist the instructor in improving the delivery platform, specifically on selecting the appropriate application and strategizing the teaching method through modeling through technolgy.
