e-Learning Management System Using Service Oriented Architecture

2010 Journal of Computer Science  
Problem statement: Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) defines how to integrate widely disparate applications for a world that is Web based and uses multiple implementation platforms. Using (SOA) one can build durable e-learning contents, regardless of changes or evolutions in technology. This means that new content should be added to existing content without costly redesign, reconfiguration, or recoding. Approach: In this study an e-Learning management system with Web services oriented

It also supports the cross browser and it is fully integrated with different databases; MS SQL Server, MS Access, Oracle and LDAP. Results: The key values of Interoperability, durability, compatibility, manageability, dynamic reusability and accessibility in the proposed architecture enhance the future e-Learning systems to communicate more efficiently and share data more easily. Conclusion/Recommendations: Web services architecture will provide a standard based platform for Service-Oriented Computing. It defines itself as a set of specifications that support an open XML-based platform for description, discovery, and interoperability of distributed, heterogeneous applications as services.
