Abstract: In Cloud computing technology, Cloud Service Broker (CSB) is an entity that works as intermediator between Cloud Service Provider (CSP) and user. CSP provides Cloud services like SaaS (Software as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service) and IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service). SaaS is “PAY-AS-YOU-GO” model. The user has to pay for the software service as per usage. PaaS gives environment for development as a service. User can develop his/her own program using third party equipment. IaaS provides requisite infrastructure to the user for carrying out the work. Instead of purchasing costly network devices including servers, software, datacenter space, the user just has to pay for these services as per usage. CSB ensures the quality of Cloud services delivered to user. Unfortunately, in most of the cases CSPs don’t adhere to quality of service. In several events, the availability of Cloud service is not up to the mark, reliability is traded off and other quality factors are also compromised. Cloud service broker deals with above quality issues. In this research paper, we will discuss involvement of CSB in improving the teaching skills of the teacher. Cloud computing assists teachers in getting access of thousands of educational sites. Few of them are, National Institute of Technical Teachers Training and Research(NITTTR), Scilab, Virtual Labs, National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL), DURASPACE etc. By incorporating, material from these websites, teachers can improve the quality of their teaching learning process. These sites are maintained by CSPs, whose quality can be ensured by CSB. CSB assures the availability, reliability and response time of these CSPs. By involving CSB in Cloud services, teachers could get hassle free services from service providers.
