Knowledge Maturing and the Continuity of Context as a Unifying Concept for Knowledge Management and E-Learning
A. Schmidt. Proceedings of I-KNOW 05, Graz, Austria
Although both e-learning and knowledge management are about facilitating learning in organization, the major obstacle to bring both of them together can be traced back to different paradigms of learning, resulting from the different nature of the knowledge they are dealing with. In this paper, a knowledge maturing process is presented to illustrate the change of nature and the discontinuities. This lays the foundation for a better understanding. In order to overcome the discontinuities, the consideration of context is proposed, which offers the required continuity.
