This study investigated the impact of cloud services on mathematics education students' mathematics confidence, affective engagement, and behavioral engagement in public universities in Benue State, Nigeria. Ex-post facto research design was adopted for the study. The instrument for the study was the researcher-developed Cloud Services Mathematics Attitude Scale-CSMAS (Cronbach Alpha Coefficient = 0.92). The CSMAS was administered to a sample of 328 mathematics education students drawn from the two public universities having operational cloud service delivery system in Benue State. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer research questions while t-test was used in testing the hypotheses. In-depth analysis of data revealed that there is a positive high level of impact of cloud services on the mathematics confidence (cluster mean = 2.85), affective engagement (cluster mean = 2.87) and behavioral engagement (cluster mean = 2.92) of mathematics education students in public universities in Benue State. The t-test analysis of mean attitude ratings established a statistically significant difference between the public universities; as well as male and female students. The outcome of this study has shown that the adoption of cloud services for augmenting learning results in strong positive mentality and confidence among mathematics education students in public universities in Benue State.
