In this paper we present a new approach to enabling pedagogically sound reuse and re-purposing of online learning objects in a community of practice. The lack of specific software for non-technical users inspired the development of an innovative toolkit. The toolkit allows users to edit learning objects collaboratively in a Wiki-type editing environment and to add and modify context-rich metadata which greatly assists in the efficient retrieval of learning objects. The focus of this paper is on the development of the Wiki-type editor which provides an effective way of re-purposing learning objects in disparate communities.
