In this context, this paper aims to provide a systematic literature review of cloud computing capabilities, challenges, and usages of the educational sector. The paper presents the systematic analysis of 52 research papers on cloud computing for education. For simplification and better understanding, these papers were divided into four categories namely academic institutes, library, e-learning and adoption. The purpose of the presented work is to clarify the requirements of cloud-based education systems. Authors identified recent research directions, and research challenges and opportunities of cloud computing for education purpose. This article contributes in theorizing cloud computing capabilities in the context of educational sector and provides future direction of research in this field.
