Abstract

The synergies, functional effectiveness and integration of KM within an e-learning environment have attracted little interest for serious research, despite the overarching importance of knowledge acquisition by students for fostering their innovation and creativity. Learners often fail to reach their desired learning objects due to the failure of indexing methods to provide them with a ubiquitous learning grid. The aim of this paper is to discuss how knowledge management can be used effectively in e-learning, and how it can provide a learning grid to enable the learner to identify the right learning objects in an environment which is based on the learner's context and personal preferences.
