Many web based systems are adopting asynchronized way, the teacher publishes learning content statically on the internet and the student obtain static learning materials at different times where, real classroom learning follows a synchronized learning process ,the students in and out of the classroom can listen to the live instructions while the tutor gives the lectures. So, the synchronized learning process is much more attractive than the asynchronized learning process. We build a prototype application called Real Open Smart Classroom build on our software infrastructure using Web Services Composition Technology. Real Open Smart Classroom tries to connect two Smart Classroom together to give a novel experience for the students and the tutor in the class. Simple sharing of the video and voice are inadequate. It is necessary for the Real Open Smart Classroom to provide a new mechanism for the tutor and the students to learn and interact in their Web Based Learning Environment. A Web Based Communication Scheme is established, deployed in an open network for the classroom to make use of the abundant dedicated services using Web Services Composition.
