One of the most promising technologies that allows to create a single learning environment and to organize an effective networking of teachers and students is the technology of cloud computing. The article reveals didactic capabilities of cloud computing for construction of information learning environment, which serves the medium for training, project, and research activities of students and for organizing an effective networking of students and teachers. As an example, a draft of the information learning environment developed by the Department of Applied Informatics and Information Technologies in Education of Kozma Minin Nizhny Novgorod State Pedagogical University. A Google Apps for Education package was employed, which is a universal tool for building information environment and which promotes effective interaction of all participants of the educational process, planning joint activities, properly allocation of resources and provision of the necessary tools for solving learning tasks.
