This paper introduces preliminary work about learning environments. Lots of research, regarding what teachers need, has been carried out but few digital specific environments have really been integrated into schools. Therefore work still needs to be done and specialised tools should be introduced. In particular, we would like to provide teachers of History with a working environment enabling them to prepare lessons. To do so, our environment derives from a web-based system called WebLS. It provides functions that precisely fit teachers' needs (manage and design multimedia contents from everywhere, provide reusability). Teachers have three main tasks to create personal card-index notes for the preparation of lessons. Our environment contains a tool that is modelled to support these teachers' tasks. But the most important task for the teachers is resources' selection. Therefore we introduce in this paper a focus on how we propose to facilitate resource selection for teachers of History.
