Research in Technology Enhanced Learning is multidisciplinary, what means that several disciplines have to share concepts and methods around a shared objective, and that they have also to coin concepts to take into account the specificity of the questions it addresses. Moreover, having to deal with learning and education, it has to face epistemological and cultural issues due to the history of education and the diversity of the relations to knowledge. As a result TEL research must manage linguistic and semantic issues in a much more critical way than it is the case for computer scientist and specialists of technology involved in this field. To respond to this challenge, the Stellar network of excellence in collaboration with the European association TELEARC, has initiated the creation of a thesaurus and a dictionary of the terms and expressions used in TEL research.
