Diverse e-learning applications are implemented in the different part of the whole e-learning system. As a result, to fulfill the entire learning activities, the information and functionalities should be shared, interacted, and interoperated among all the e-learning applications. In order to make any e-learning applications add, delete and upgrade its own modules without affecting other applications according to the changes of all the stakeholders` needs, the scalability must be considered when we design the architecture for e-learning systems. The major purposes of this study were to provide the application of Service-Oriented Architecture for e-learning system design. To achieve this research purposes, research questions were suggested as follows: First, What are the challenges faced in the e-learning system design? Second, what are the characteristics of the application of architecture for service-oriented e-learning system with respect to the solutions of those challenges? Third, what are the suggestions for further research toward effective service-oriented e-learning system?
