Abstract

Service-Oriented Architectures are becoming a popular system paradigm in e-learning, and there are several efforts to create community driven service frameworks. In this paper, we argue that these efforts could benefit if they also drew on Semantic Web technologies to create (Semantic Web) Services – services that use resources described on the semantic web. We present a demonstrator which uses three such services to search over question bank data. We show how the use of Semantic Web technologies not only promotes high-quality and interoperable metadata, but that it also enables reasoning rules to be declared that make developing new services easier.
