This paper reports work on the use of asynchronous multimedia conferencing (AMC) to support collaborative continuing professional development. In particular it explores how we may use multimedia communications technologies to enable key elements of real‐world working knowledge, that are tacit and embedded in working practices, to be rendered into shareable forms for professional learning. We believe multimedia communications technology can offer innovative ways of capturing rich examples of working practices and tacit knowledge, and for sharing and subjecting these artefacts to scrutiny, debate and refinement within a community of learners. More explicitly, we see participants in a geographically distributed community of practice being able to create, annotate, discuss and reflect upon videoclips of their working practices within the multimedia conferencing environment. This paper summarizes some studies that cast light on how representations of practice may be captured for use in an AMC environment
