The need for designing the next generation of web service‐based educational systems with the ability of integrating components from different tools and platforms is now recognised as the major challenge in advanced learning technologies. In this paper, we discuss this issue and we present the conceptual design of such environment, referred to as ASK Learning Service Platform (ASK‐LSP), that can support reusing and repurposing of learning scenarios, activities and content in a consistent manner.
