Abstract: ShareTEC “Sharing Digital Resources in the Teaching Education Community” is a 3-year project (2008 to 2011) co-funded by the European Community. Share.TEC is devoted to develop and cultivate a digital culture in Teacher Education. It supports the development of a European perspective of Teacher Education. To achieve this goal the Share.TEC-project is developing an online platform which will help practitioners across Europe search for, learn about and exchange resources. A major objective is supporting the sharing of experience about using the resources. The system is primarily designed for teacher educators and teachers engaged in pre-service education and professional development. Other target groups are publishers of digital resources for Teacher Education. Search and communications functions are presented as well as communities and workshops set up to facilitating use of resources. Finally the benefits, obstacles and challenges of using and producing digital resources in a portal are discussed.
