This paper reports considerations being made by those responsible for introducing staff at a large distance university to the possibilities for developing new practices around the introduction of a new institution wide VLE. How can new or emergent practices be codified into sharable representations and shared by a large and dispersed workforce? The paper considers some current solutions such as patterns, learning design and the use of toolkits by applying a framing concept of boundary objects to understand some of the problems involved in sharing emerging practices
