This study introduces a distributed e-education services system based on the service oriented architecture. Next generation educational services must identify and support dynamic semantic mappings to support semantic interoperability. The Service Oriented Architecture facilitates the development of such systems by supporting modular design, application integration and interoperation, and software reuse. With open standards, such as XML, SOAP, WSDL and UDDI, the Service Oriented Architecture supports interoperability between services operating on different platforms and between applications implemented in different programming languages. In this paper we describe a distributed e-education services system that uses the Service Oriented Architecture as a basis for designing, implementing, deploying, invoking and managing educational services.
