Abstract

This paper describes the design and on-going implementation effort of a Web-service-based, dynamic and collaborative learning management system. A Learning Content Definition Model is used to model distributed and sharable learning resources as content objects. Distributed and sharable software systems are modeled as software objects. Both types of objects are uniformly published as Web-services in a constraint-based Web-service registry and are made sharable and reusable. We also introduce a Learning Process Definition Model and a Learning Process Execution Engine for specifying and executing learning process models, which define instructional modules in the forms of activity trees. An implemented Event-Trigger-Rule Server is integrated with the execution engine to make the learning management system active, flexible, customizable and adaptable. It is also used to facilitate the interaction and coordination among learners, and other personnel involved in collaborative e-learning.
