【摘要】：Traditional practical teaching has problems on low reusability, high cost and low collaboration ability. To solve these problems, this paper proposes a solution that is to build and use a novel practical teaching platform based on cloud computing. By utilizing advanced information technology, for example, cloud computing, this solution can present a unified service system providing practical teaching resource management, innovation resource management and knowledge management both inside and outside class. Moreover, an instance implementing the cloud-based practical teaching unified services system, Yun Hai, would be detailedly discussed in this paper. The system deployment, resource configuration and matched practice teaching mode will be presented. Yun Hai is independently developed by State Key Laboratory of Networking and Switching Technology and has been deployed and employed in many institutions. To verify the effectiveness of this teaching platform, we take Data Mining, a representative course of computer science, as an example, and analyze how the system would perform when applied to such course which contains cross-disciplinary knowledges. The practice indicates that this teaching system and practical teaching mode can improve convenience and flexibility on practical teaching resource. This kind of one-stop service can contribute to the overall teaching quality improvement.
