Abstract

Computer Science Education (CSE) is one discipline that uses the growing and demanding e-learning environment to deliver the computation and technology knowledge to the learners. CSE needs practical sessions as the main part of its education process. Many Learning Management Systems (LMS) have limited resources towards virtual labs. This hinders the free and direct utilization of the software tools that are needed for CSE. As a consequence, researchers attempted to support the LMSs and develop these resources as built-in components in the LMS itself. In this direction, this paper proposes the usage of the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) to overcome the limitations of the LMSs towards the practical sessions of CSE. The software developer uses SOA to develop the needed resources as services and then integrates them in the LMS environment. In this paper, all experimental works are carried out on the Moodle environment since it is an open source and used at the Sultan Qaboos University (SQU) in Oman.
