Abstract: Service-Oriented Architectures (SOAs) 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 the 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 that make developing new services easier to be declared.
