Enterprise Systems like Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are an important application area in higher education and getting more and more complex. Therefore problems occur from different perspectives and increase the difficulties in teaching. Existing software products cannot be used to teach specific technical aspects, like e.g. Web Services because it is still research in progress. This contribution reports about using a Federated ERP (FERP) system as an example for a Web Service-based ERP system to introduce aspects of Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) in higher education.
