Abstract: 

The accelerated development of the networked society throughout the last few years had a strong impact on the teaching and learning activities from the medical related domains. E-learning applications have become very popular and encouraged the shift from traditional training activities – having the teacher as a mediator, towards self-guided ones where the teacher is rather a supervisor. These changes imposed the creation of new, more complex and more interactive teaching resources, with high quality standards, that could fulfill the requirements of the new approach. At present, the lack of specialized development tools requires the involvement of both medical and IT specialists in the resources creation process, consequently, generating higher production costs. In this chapter, the authors present two specialized tools – MetaMorphosis+ and eGLE – together with a new resources development methodology based on the repurposing approach and the blend of social networks activities with semantic web functionalities. In addition, the authors describe the user evaluation activities performed over the MetaMorphosis+ application and the results obtained.
