XML has become a standard format in information exchange and integration on the Web. Much research has been conducted in recent years on XML technology, which has led to new developments in this field. The effective combination of XML and relational databases for portable Internet data exchange and data management is the technology platform of choice for the Internet Applications. Our paper describes the relationship between XML and relational databases and its potential as an enabling technology to support e-learning. In addition, the paper discusses how relational databases and XML fit together and briefly illustrates their implication in the development of e-learning systems. We introduce our e-learning model, as an example of this new developing methodology.
