Ontologies are used to represent knowledge and their semantic information from different topics, to allow users a better way to explore knowledge and find information faster, because of the data-structuring. To achieve a well filled knowledgebase, editors have to be used, to enter new and to edit existing information. But most of the existing ontology-editors are designed for experienced ontology-experts. Experts from other topic fields e.g. physicians are often novices in the area of ontology-creating, they need adequate tools, which hide the complexity of ontology-structures. In the area of e-learning experts are also teachers as well. In this paper we will present a method, how the needs of domain-experts can be regarded and so an editor can designed, which allows an editing and adding of information by users without having experiences of creating ontologies. With such an editor domain-experts are able to commit their expert-knowledge into the ontology.
