Abstract: In recent years, e-learning has started to attract a lot of attention from researchers as well as practitioners. Many of the existing architectures for e-learning systems are based mainly on plain client-server or peer-to-peer architectures, and therefore suffer from drawbacks like poor scalability or the complicated interchange of content. In this paper we present a distributed, service-oriented architecture for e-learning systems based on web services, and describe the extensions to support software agents. Moreover, we show what advantages such an architecture may have to offer and propose the usage of intelligent software agents for the distributed retrieval of educational content. The implementation of these services enables a reuse of functionalities of an e-Learning platform. The present research has identified and created common services, which are essential for the creation and authoring stages of typical e-Learning system architecture by utilized Learning Objects (LOs). These services are Web Services based and will provide a common interface between various components leading to platform independence and interoperability between learning system..

Keywords: e-Learning, Web Services, Learning Objects.
