An e-Curriculum Based Systematic Resource Integration Approach to Web-Based Education

William W. Song, Anders Forsman, and Jia Yan

Abstract—With the rapid advancement of the web technology, more and more educational resources, including software applications for teaching/learning methods, are available across the web, which enables learners to access the learning materials and use various ways of learning at any time and any place. Researchers from both computer science and education are working together, collaboratively focusing on development of pedagogically enabling technologies which are believed to improve the infrastructure of education systems and processes, including curriculum development models, teaching/learning methods, management of educational resources, systematic organization of communication and dissemination of knowledge and skills required by and adapted to users. In this paper we address the following two aspects of systematic integration architecture of educational systems: 1) learning objects – a semantic description and organization of learning resources using the web service models and methods, and 2) learning services discovery and learning goals match for educational coordination and learning service planning.

Index Terms—E-curriculum, learning object, e-learning, web based educational systems.
