With the development of Internet and the use of digital pedagogy, the production of open educational resources grows very quickly. Sharing these resources has become a major challenge both from an economic point of view, but also for the dissemination and sharing of practices among teachers. The problematics are psychologic (help for learning), ergonomic (usability, acceptability) but also documentary (reuse resources) and editorial (enhancement of digital archives). Based on an ontology developed by University of Oxford and translated in French, we developed a digital archive of open educational resources for teaching statistics. We present and discuss e-book enrichment scenarios in undergraduate statistics courses. We present how this ontology-based approach allows thinking enriched e-books as an adaptive and collaborative learning device.
