Abstract: Web services are defined as accessible software programs ex- posed through an Internet interface description which enhances client to server requests and are not only easily invoked and consumed but they provide interoperability for applications through Service-Oriented Architectures. The Semantic Web, Web services and Web technologies, have so far been mostly utilised in business models and processes throughout industry. This research paper proposes to show how these emergent technologies are also being exploited for E-learning environments. Such a service applies in fact not only to businesses and the work-place but also to academic settings. The ability to make a provision for flexible, personalised and adaptable services is heavily dependent on Web technologies which need to be moulded into rich, dynamic and active environments based on individual user needs and requirements. The paper aims to highlight ongoing projects in this area offering a brief description of their findings and achievements as well as identify future trends in the areas of flexible learning systems.
