Managing the large amount of learning content involved in the development of an expandable learning management system (LMS) is a critical task for most educational organizations. In designing such a system, consideration must be given not only to the requirement of instructors and students, but also to the adaptive qualities of the system itself, because of the rapidly changing software environment. Unlike most enterprises, educational organization can't afford high system maintenance. Development of a flexible, expandable and reliable learning management system is, therefore, imperative. This paper proposes a Web service oriented framework in building a sharable content object reference model (SCORM) compatible LMS. We integrated the SCORM concept with distributed computing technologies to build the components of the LMS and demonstrate how these services can be configured to create a complete system. This framework increases reusability and reduces the maintenance requirements of the LMS. It provides a way for small educational organizations, with limited resources, to build a complete SCORM compatible LMS. In such an ideal situation, the content provider not only provides the content, but also the service for the consumers of that content.
