This is a proposal of a specialized business-to-business platform for integration of educational centers, much like a statewide educational marketplace. This platform tries to match supply and demand in the education industry, while providing a media for integration of all educational information produced by not just universities, but also other educational institu-tions (private and public, primary and secondary schools, evening lecture centers, etc.). The published information is used to maintain a global catalogue of course descriptions, academics and resources. Since libraries and teaching material stores are a crucial component in the work of each educational center, unified access point for the virtual digital libraries and course con-tents is also maintained via this platform. The information sharing modules on the education centre side are to be implemented as web services completely described via WSDL. Service descriptions are catalogued using a standard UDDI registry definition; all in-between commu-nication is through SOAP.
