The growth and development of information and communication technologies implies new working forms and new learning forms. In such a context (1) the learning social process is increased, (2) methods to manage the numerous learning resources at disposal on the web are required. In this paper we present why and how we associated knowledge management methods, Semantic Web and Web 2.0 to develop a collaborative learning environment in the framework of the approach MEMORAe.
