The increasing number of available resources that may be used during e-learning can raise problems of access, management and sharing. An e-learning application therefore shares the same problem of relevance to the Web concerning the access to learning resources. Semantic web technologies provide promising solutions to such problems. One main feature of this new web generation is the shared understanding based on ontologies. This chapter presents an approach to index learning resources semantically using a LOM ontology. This ontology was developed to clarify the concepts, and to describe the existing relations between elements of the LOM standard. The author present also our tool based on this ontology which allows to describe learning objects and helps retrieving them.
