Using Web Services to Support e-Learning
Paul Trueman, Netskills
Web services technology provides the opportunity to integrate applications and business functionality in to existing Web enabled VLEs. A Web service exposes business functionality by both consuming and producing data in XML format. Future online learning environments may be fully developed and maintained using a Web services infrastructure. Web services solutions as yet still need to reach their full potential; particularly in the academic sector. In this session Paul will demonstrate potential uses of Web services to support e-Learning and present guidelines on how to consider making best use of this emerging technology.
