Abstract

Learning management systems are being used in today's educational climate without much thought to current pedagogies and interoperability. The Open Knowledge Initiative (OKI) provides a set of Open Service Interface Definitions (OSID's) that address interoperability in the educational enterprise while remaining pedagogically flexible. Web Services are suggested as a suitable middleware to use when integrating the enterprise services using OKI. A possible integration strategy is suggested for the learning management system WebStation 3 to demonstrate OKI.
