Abstract
International audience; Historically, mathematics education has been bedeviled by the deployment of instructional strategies that seriously stunt the growth of students. Methodologies and approaches of instructional delivery in tertiary institutions have raised the need for technological augmentation for both students and mathematics educators. Cloud computing yield itself to this quest by strengthening individualized learning via unrestricted access to infrastructure, platforms, content, and powerful web-based tools from anywhere within the private cloud architecture adopted by tertiary institutions in Nigeria. This paper considers broad safety concerns of this...
