Modularization of digital learning content has been addressed for through the concept of Learning Ob-jects. In this article it is shown this modularized concept can be extended to the Virtual Learning Envi-ronment. A general, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) framework for modularized Virtual Learning Environments was implemented based on the VWE Learning Objects Taxonomy. It is argued that SOA is a suitable approach for modularization, and that the resulting SOA-framework can be used as basis for implementing specialized e-learning services, specified by future standard frameworks and reference models.
