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.
