Workflow and Web Services

Jul 12, 2005

Just to keep you up in the rapidly changing world of e-learning frameworks, JISC and DEST have agreed to collaborate, the major result being (naturally) a name change - the E-Learning Framework is now joined by (replaced by?) the The e-Framework for Education and Research - and a new website. Be sure to read Scott Wilson's paper, Workflow and web services (PDF), for a good grounding in the fundamentals of the approach. Note well his description of 'composite applications' - "A Composite Application (Figure 2) is an application that provides a rich user experienceCRLFby leveraging a collection of services." For background on the concept, look up web services orchestration and choreography. More from Stuart Yeates. p.s. Scott, put dates on your papers!
