The education systems of 21st century are characterized by increasing dependence on various modes of electronic facilities. E-learning is one such facility that can ensure education for everyone without considering their geographical locations. However, due to very high initial cost for infrastructural development, developing countries like Bangladesh are unable to get the total benefits of e-learning. Therefore, the education facilities and standards in rural and remote areas are noticeably dissatisfactory, compared to the urban areas of those countries. Reusing of existing resources and infrastructures to implement an e-learning system can reduce the overall operational cost of the system, hence can be ideal for developing countries to exploit various e-learning facilities. Considering these issues, in this paper we propose to design a web service oriented resource based system named “E-School” for the primary, secondary, and higher secondary education system of Bangladesh. This e-learning system will provide identical course materials, useful multimedia tools, integrated databases, and help desk for students. We design E-School as a platform independent system so that it can be accessed using any cell phone, PDA and computer from anywhere with mobile network coverage.
