Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) defines how to integrate widely disparate applications for a world that is web-based and uses multiple implementation platforms. In this paper the authors propose an e-learning management system with Web services oriented framework. The system will be an open source application with client-scripting facility. It also supports the cross browser and it is fully integrated with different databases; MS SQL Server, MS Access, Oracle, and LDAP. The key values of Interoperability, durability, compatibility, manageability, dynamic reusability, and accessibility in the proposed architecture enhance the future e-learning systems to communicate more efficiently and share data more easily.
