The Internet and telecommunication system are now used to disseminate information for the education sector. Traditional classroom teaching has transformed into the "far-distance teaching" and "on-line teaching", which both utilize the information transmission via the Internet or telecommunication system. The mechanism of "on-line teaching" enables students to participate in course discussion and learn in any time they wish. On-line teaching is being listed as a necessity in education propagation. The use of SOAP (simple object access protocol) technology as the standard remote data access scheme is emphasized, and is applied by On-line Teaching System to provide access for different mobile devices. SOAP technology will be used to design the on-line teaching system and SOAP functional components on mobile device that use the SOAP technology to access the on-line teaching system. Its communication mechanism, implementation and provided functions are discussed. The SOAP adopting access mechanism is also compared with the traditional access technology implementation.
