This paper describes a proposal for developing an architecture for Educational Cloud based on OpenStack framework, Service Composition techniques and Semantic Web to create virtualized environments with specific features for teaching and researching environments, through the study of recent patents correlated to this system. The creation and management of the architecture and its virtualized environment are conducted through a system of service composition. Services are made available as a catalogue and their access is limited by the user’s profile type (student, teacher, or researcher). The results shown in this article are limited to the presentation and description of the system logic architecture and modeling.
