The daily life conditions, which are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic process, have caused restrictions in many important areas of life, such as education, and these restrictions have been eliminated through technology. In teaching and learning processes, the instructors who do not have digital literacy encountered problems in creating digital content by using online education tools. This study aims to design and develop an online digital content library, content distribution screen, and forum system based on the community of practice theory to the readers. The system is expected to increase the knowledge and skills of the instructors in a teacher community, who may be unfamiliar with technology in the content preparation processes and contribute to the development of quality content and higher education.
