Web-based learning management systems dominate the market due to the pervasiveness of Web applications and contents. Web service techniques are able to loosely couple functional modules of learning management systems. Currently, most of learning materials and the associated processing logics are aggregated into packages before delivery to learners. However, Web service and its derivative techniques allow instructional designers to compose learning processes through orchestrating various service-based pedagogical resources. This paper aims to identify key issues which affect the design of learning management systems for conducting instructional activities in a service-oriented approach. In addition, a revamped system architecture and corresponding design rationale for coping with these issues will be presented.
